A drug dealer that was actually dealing in broccoli has been sentenced to 16 years in prison. But it wasn’t just for the bogus drug deal, but for opening fire on buyers who protested they’d been scammed when he tried to pass off broccoli as cannabis.

The two men fired 11 shots at two angry customers, which resulted in one of the customers being hit in the torso.

The suspect met the two buyers to sell some weed. After the buyers handed over $10,000, The suspect then handed over a package of broccoli, which he’d purchased earlier from a grocery store.

Once the buyers realized they’d been had, they got back in touch with the suspect, using an assumed name, to set up another deal, in which to recover their money or get the weed. At the next meeting, an argument began, at which point the two dealers fired 11 bullets at the two buyers that were looking to recoup the money or green – as in cannabis, not broccoli.

Deputy District Attorney Michael Mauro, who tried the case, said in a release,

The defendant’s decision to open fire in the mall parking lot during business hours could easily have seriously injured or killed people arriving at or departing from the mall ― which included adults and children. The verdict and sentence, in this case, represent a just outcome.

District Attorney George Brauchler said in a statement,

This may be the first time that broccoli has been bad for someone’s health. And no matter the reason, anyone who is convicted of trying to murder someone in our community will go to prison.
