Man calls 911: 'Where can I buy some marijuana this morning?'

Man calls 911: 'Where can I buy some marijuana this morning?'

The man appeared serious and surprised that he had called 911 earlier this month and asked a Washington County dispatcher where he could buy some pot. (Listen to the call below)

Man: Where can I get some marijuana?

911: Excuse me?

Man: Where can I buy some marijuana this morning?

911: Do you realize you called the police department?

Man: No I didn’t. That’s very interesting. Well, let me ask you the same question. (long pause) It’s a legitimate question.

911: Which question is that?

Man: Where can I buy some marijuana this morning?

The dispatcher told the man that she had no idea where he could buy some pot. The man thanked her and the Thursday, May 1 call ended.

And despite wanting to buy marijuana ‘this morning,’ the call came in at 9:41 p.m.

Hillsboro police were sent to check on the man, however.
