Once again we've plundered the depths of stupidity and found this story, about a Connecticut man who phoned the police for advice on growing marijuana.
21-year-old Robert Michelson called 911 to find out how much trouble he might get in for growing the drug.
'I was just growing some marijuana and I was just wondering how much, you know, trouble you can get into for one plant' he asked.
When the operator asked if he was actually in the process of committing a crime, Michelson replied 'possibly'.
Police traced the call to Michelson's home, where they found a small amount of pot. He was arrested and released on bail.
Surely being that thick is punishment enough?
