HILLSBORO, Ore. (CBS Seattle/AP) — A man recently called a Washington County 911 dispatcher with an unusual request.

He asked, “Where can I buy some marijuana this morning?”

When the dispatcher asked him if he realized he was calling the police department, he said that was interesting but he had a legitimate question and repeated the request.

KATU reports the dispatcher told him she had no idea where he could buy some pot. He thanked her and the call ended.

By the way, the time on May 1 when the man was looking for marijuana “this morning” was at 9:41 at night.

Washington County would like to remind everyone that 911 is for emergencies only.
