SHARONVILLE, OHIO — An Ohio police station took pity on a man who called their station demanding that they give him his weed back — but not before sharing a few laughs on social media.

"To be blunt, recreational marijuana is still ILLEGAL... per our STATE law."

The Sharonville Police Department received a call from a man they have dubbed Mr. Marilyn Manson, to protect his identity, on Tuesday.

Mr. Manson was less than happy, complaining to the Sheriff who took the call that officers had stolen his and his wife's weed.

"I had two cops come here last night and steal my F----ing weed, and I want it back," Manson told the officer.

The man proceeded to tell cops his name and and where cops had taken it from. Which was a hotel room he and his wife were in for the night.

To Manson's knowledge, marijuana was not legal; however, 100 grams "is cool" with law enforcement.

"And them mother-----ers took it. And from what I know, 100 grams is cool," Manson said.

"We don't make the rules; we just took an oath to uphold them," The Stantonville Police Department said. "100 grams is not 'cool.' Pass it on ;)."

Marijuana is only legal for medicinal purposes in Ohio, as it is in Michigan and Illinois.

Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb remains opposed to efforts by state lawmakers to allow medical or recreational marijuana in the state.
