Dad Profits From His Son Smoking Weed


While this is making light of a very serious issue for any parent to encounter, I read a story about a dad in Montreal who recently caught his son smoking marijuana with a few of his friends and turned it into a very profitable situation.

After catching his 15-year-old smoking weed in the back yard, the man decided to sell the copy of Guitar Hero III - one of the hottest gifts this holiday season for Nintendo Wii owners - that he had bought for his son. Apparently the man felt that selling the coveted game would be a worthy punishment and discourage his son from smoking marijuana again.

The auction apparently closed with a winning bid of $9,100 from someone in Australia - not too bad for a $90 purchase.

The man has kept his identity private, which naturally makes me question the validity of the story as it would not be the first time that someone created a sensational story to try and generate a buzz around their auction.

After reading this story I could not help but kick myself for not purchasing the four copies of Guitar Hero III that I saw at a local Target the week after Thanksgiving, although I would much rather miss out on the potential profit than be faced with finding one of my kids using drugs.

In the event that you have well-behaved children and are still looking for your copy of Guitar Hero III, be sure to check out the latest online auctions as I doubt you will find a copy at any of the local stores.

    Yeah this one sounded a little fishy to me as well. If true he should stick the money in his kids college fund.

    Now if you would have purchased GH III AND a WI then you could probably retire :-)

    Or you can get Rock Band.

    I think that is a good punishment. Caving and giving the gift after something like that can send the message that it’s no big deal.

    On another front, we got our son a GameCube for Xmas this year.

    @HiTechDad :: We were out tonight and saw GH III all over the place for XBox and PlayStation but nothing for the Wii. Looks like I missed my early retirement.

    @Kelvin :: Rock Bank looks too involved for my taste, although I have heard it is quite fun.

    @Damien :: I’m sure your son will love the GameCube!

    Even if the numbers are embellished, this is still a good story. Hopefully the father will follow up his actions with a talk with his child.
