A Family That Smokes Together, Stays Together (Until The Kids Rat ‘Em Out)

Finally, an answer to the age-old question, “which came first- the good behavior or the joint?”

A mother and father accused of providing their preteen sons with marijuana as a reward for good behavior have been arrested by Chandler police. Toni Lynn Carlson, 31, and Aaron Virgil Carlson, 23, were booked on suspicion of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, possessing marijuana for sale, contributing to the delinquency of minors and endangerment.

They were taken into custody Thursday evening after detectives served a search warrant at the Carlsons’ home in the 400 block of West Aloe Place.

A court document states a quarter-pound of marijuana was found in the home.

Police said the boys, ages 12 and 11, and a 4-year-old girl, are in the care and custody of a family member.

The investigation began after authorities received tips from a neighbor about the possible usage and sale of drugs at the home, police spokesman Sgt. Rick Griner said.

Detectives didn’t know about the family possibly smoking marijuana together until the parents and children were interviewed, Griner added.

Also under investigation is the possibility the Carlsons supplied drugs to other children. (Source)

I think we’ve found Nicky “No Seeds” Randle’s supplier. I’m curious about the fact that 23-year-old Carlson isn’t referred to as “the stepfather.”

    Well if the oldest kid is 12, it means Carlson, who is 11 years older, could ¤technicaly¤ be the father…

    I think this whole thing turns on what the good behaviour (Canadian spelling) actually was.

    I’m going to have to know that before I pass judgment.


    P.S. I do have some concerns about the children playing with matches.
