Daughter Reports Mom's Pot Plants to Police
A Rochester Hills, Mich., mother faces potential drug charges after her daughter reported her to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, according to MyFoxDetroit.com.
Christina Consolo's 19-year-old daughter called authorities Sunday to report that her mother was growing marijuana plants in their home.
Deputies found plants and drug paraphernalia after searching the home, according to a story in The Detroit News. Consolo, 40, said her daughter was following some motherly advice when she made the call.
"Well, she's obviously making a stand for what she believes in," Consolo told ClickOnDetroit.com. "I encourage her to do that."
Consolo told the news outlet she uses the marijuana to relieve pain from a back injury. She said she will try and find another source for the drug.
"They've taken away what would have been my medicine, which then forces me to go out on the street and procure it," she said in the ClickOnDetroit.com interview.
