Girl turns in her OWN parents for dealing weed
A 9-year-old girl gave her parents in the ultimate time-out after revealing their pot selling operation to police. The unidentified child reportedly walked into a Minnesota police station to voice her in a very "grown-up" manner that surprised even authorities. Although she was not even a teen, the child seemed to know more than police expected regarding drugs.
However her main concern reveals that she is wise beyond her years and makes me like her even more!

While most children would remain quiet about any illegal activity their parents may be doing, this little girl bravely stepped up and did the right thing.She told police that her parents were growing marijuana under their house and that they would sell it. But her main concern had more to do with her health than anything else.
She explained to cops that she was concerned for her health and her dogs as well because she didn't think the smoke from the drugs was good for them. Officer Ryan Beattie said: "She was a very brave, very smart, very articulate little girl. It was almost like interviewing an adult. She appeared to have intelligence far above a normal little girl ... [and] she gave some pretty specific information about things, like types of drug paraphernalia, that no young person ought to have knowledge about."
Police searched the girl's home where they did find drug paraphernalia as well as the marijuana plants they were growing. It's unclear if the child's parents are facing any charges, but all we know is she is no longer in their care. Her grandparents have taken custody of her as police continue to investigate the case.
It's interesting to me that a child told on her own parents. I mean, considering they were super focused on their drug selling and doing drugs, I'm sure they probably weren't even great parents. I will never understand how people can expose children to drugs and think it's perfectly okay. While some kids fall into the same bad habits as their parents, this little girl bravely did the opposite because she knew right from wrong. I hope she's in better care with her grandparents, since her parents weren't doing a good job as guardians in the first place.
