TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Desiree Martin A picture taken on April 12, 2013 shows plants of marijuana at the plantation of the Sibaratas Med Can association in Mogan on the southwest coast of the island of Gran Canaria. The plants grow from cuttings for approximately two months and then blossom before being harvested, dried, stored in jars for a month and later processed to be consumed on site. Spanish law prohibits the possession of soft drugs like cannabis in public and its growth to be sold for profit is illegal. But the law does tolerate growing cannabis for personal use and its consumption in private. Dozens of private marijuana smoking clubs operate across Spain that take advantage of this legal loophole that serve cannabis users who do not want to get their drugs from the streets.

This little girl wants good parents, not good buds.

It's too bad, then, that the 9-year-old girl's parents were allegedly growing marijuana under their Minnesota home. The girl entered a police station in Barnesville over the weekend and calmly told officers that her folks were growing weed and selling it, according to the Star Tribune.

The girl reportedly said she wanted a change because the smell of the pot smoke made her feel sick. She was worried about the family dog's health, too, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

"She was a very brave, very smart, very articulate little girl," officer Ryan Beattie told the paper. "It was almost like interviewing an adult. She appeared to have intelligence far above a normal little girl … [and] she gave some pretty specific information about things, like types of drug paraphernalia, that no young person ought to have knowledge about."

A subsequent search of the home revealed seven marijuana plants under the house, drug paraphernalia and other suspected substances, WAOW reports. Charges hadn't yet been filed Monday morning, pending a lab analysis of the plants.

The girl is currently staying with her grandparents.
