An enraged man in the Northern Territory of Australia called the police to complain against his father after the later set fire on his marijuana plants on Tuesday. Police reached the Humpty Doo residence, 40km south of Darwin, and confirmed the accusation.

The "indignant and enraged" man claimed the two of them had a fight just before the incident. "As retribution his father burnt the son's prized marijuana plants in a bonfire on the property. The son felt this was wrong and reported the matter to police," duty superintendent Louise Jorgensen said.

Meanwhile, the police interrogated the young man and asked whether he knew possession of marijuana is unlawful.  However, the police found that the son was not concerned about dobbing himself in for possessing marijuana. "He seemed to believe that the destruction of the same was far worse than the possession in the first instance," Jorgensen added.

The police did not reveal the ages of both son and father, but said that the son had been in conflict with his father since last few months.

The Misuse of Drugs Act says the activities like grow, manufacture, sale, supply, possess or use of a prohibited drug or prohibited plant are illegal in Northern Territory. Police have discretion power to issue an on the spot fine for “personal use” of marijuana.

However, the police filed no charges against the man since the evidence had been destroyed.
