Dad Sells Guitar Hero Game After Catching Son Smoking Pot

After catching his teenage son smoking pot, a father sold his son's coveted "Guitar Hero III" video game on eBay as punishment, and made over $9,000.

The father, a Canadian school teacher, spent two weeks searching for the rare video game for the Nintendo Wii gaming system before buying it for his son. But later, after coming home from work early, he caught his son smoking reefer in the backyard with his "delinquent friends."

In the eBay listing page, the man said he put the video game up for sale to punish his son and discourage him from smoking dope. See related articles on this story.

I tried playing Guitar Hero once. My attempt to play Cheap Trick's "Surrender" would drive anyone to abuse substances!
