911 caller: Where can I buy some marijuana?

HILLSBORO, Ore. — 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.
