Days of Beer and Weeds
Jack, Chrissy and Janet find out how far Mr. Roper's garden has gone to pot when they find some unusual plants while weeding it.
- While cleaning up the Ropers' overgrown backyard, the kids find some pretty weeds and give them to Mrs. Roper to add to the floral design she's doing for her flower arranging class. Jack's friend Larry informs them that the weeds are marijuana, but not before Mrs. Roper has taken them to class with her. Jack and Chrissy dash off to the police station to get sane legal advice, but Jack ends up in trouble for drunk bicycle driving, thanks to Mr. Roper's new hobby — home-brewing beer. The kids warn Mr. Roper of the marijuana, and a panicked Roper smashes his wife's arrangement right in front of her teacher. It turns out that the weed only looks like marijuana and is in fact False Aralia, which is similar in appearance but perfectly legal.
