Hartland dad accused of giving pot to kids

Village of Hartland - A 39-year-old Hartland man has been charged with maintaining a drug trafficking place and possession of drugs after someone called police to say the man gives marijuana to his sons and their teenage friends.

According to the criminal complaint filed Feb. 6 in Waukesha County Circuit Court, Hartland Police searched Joel Jamieson's home in the 800 block of Imperial Drive, on Sept. 4, 2012, after obtaining a search warrant based on a tip. The complaint said police found drug paraphernalia and 21 packages of Suboxone strips. According to drugs.com, Suboxone is an opioid similar to morphine.

Jamieson admitted to police that he, his wife and children use marijuana, according to the complaint. It said Jamieson said he and his wife smoke marijuana every day, and that he and his wife "turn a blind eye to our children smoking marijuana," because they would rather they use the drug close to home so they know where they are and they don't get into other problems, the complaint stated.

Jamieson also told police, according to the complaint, that his kids usually smoke in a shed in the backyard. He said they once started to grow a marijuana plant in the shed, but after the police began coming to the house for various complaints, he told them to clean it out, the complaint said.

He denied selling marijuana to his children or their friends, stating his children have to use their own money to buy their own marijuana, the complaint said. Jamieson said he has a prescription for the Suboxone, and police asked him for proof of that, the complaint said.

He is charged with a felony count of maintaining a drug trafficking place and two misdemeanor counts of possession of paraphernalia and a controlled substance. His initial appearance is Feb. 18. If convicted, he could face more than $10,000 in fines, driver's license suspension and more than three years in jail.
