John Falso, Wife and Son, Arrested for Growing Pot

Everybody now.
  • "Everybody now."

Every neighborhood has a family like the Falsos. They’re the super rad ones who all the kids wish they could call their own. It was the house on the block where you loved to spend the night because they’d let you do all the stuff your lame parents wouldn’t, like eat junk food, stay up late, and smoke blunts.

That’s right — blunts. In fact, Mr. and Mrs. Falso were so kosher with son Jason’s pot consumption that they helped him grow his own stash. That is until the family operation was recently busted by the Cleveland Police Vice unit.
According to 19ActionNews, 30-year-old Jason and parents John and Kimberly, 52 and 47, were busted with plants growing in the backyard of a house on 136th Street.

Detectives conducted an investigation and observed suspected marijuana plants growing on the property. Search warrants were obtained for two homes once intelligence was collected and presented to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office. The search warrants were executed and officers confiscated approximately 50 suspected marijuana plants which the suspects were growing inside the homes.

That’s a lot of herb.
