Sometimes we really worry about the state of Florida's youth. Kids today are so dumb they can't even get high correctly.
A 15-year-old boy in Daytona Beach, Florida, recently got in trouble for stealing a tomato plant, which he only swiped because he thought it was a marijuana plant.
The tomato plant's owner returned home last Friday to see someone climbing out of her kitchen window with just the plant according to WESH. The woman tried to chase the teen but he made off with his leafy loot.
A few days later, she spotted the teen again while walking her kids to school and with the help of another woman managed to hold him until police arrived.
When asked to explain the theft, the teen told police he thought it was pot. Oh, come on kid! Don't tell the police that! Why would you do that? Just tell them you really wanted to make your own fancy catchup, but your parents refused to buy you your own tomato plant or something. Don't make it any worse.
For the record, this is a tomato plant:
This is a marijuana plant:
Note that for the fact that they are both plants, they really aren't too similar.
This kid probably tries to get into a K-hole by stealing Special K cereal from the grocery.
Kid probably tries to do whippets from a vat of Kool Whip.
Kid has probably smoked a whole lot of oregano in his life.
