You won’t believe this story. Then again, maybe you will.
Synthetic marijuana could give you bad dreams, IN JAIL.
Florida 18 year old Mark Welch called 911 to report a strange dream. He had been smoking spice, or K2, synthetic marijuana, and was convinced that everything happening in his dream was real.
His parents didn’t believe him, so he called 911 to see if they would:
911 Call-Taker: “What’s happening?”
Mark Welch: “Everything that happened today is actually in my dream, and I want to prove it to everybody.”
911 Call-Taker: “What did you dream about that’s happening?”
Welch: “It’s all on paper. I wrote it down.”
The dispatcher then sent a deputy to Welch’s house, and Welch said he had been smoking synthetic marijuana, which is apparently legal in Florida. The deputy said not to call police again if it wasn’t an emergency.
His parents even hid the phone so he couldn’t call again. But Welch still wanted to prove his point.
Welch went to a neighbors house and CALLED 911 AGAIN. He told the police, “The officer told me not to call back,” said Welch, “and he said if I called back, then y’all were going to take me to court. So, I’m calling back.”
When the call-taker asked Welch if he wanted to go to jail, the teen responded, “I have to prove something to my family. So, can you send an officer back?”
Here’s the audio from the conversations:
The same dispatcher was then sent out and arrested Welch with a first degree misdemeanor for misuse of the 911 system.
He spent the night in jail with a $500 bond.
Sweet dreams, dude.
