BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) — The Bemidji police chief says no charges will be issued after someone posted a Facebook ad for marijuana.

Someone had offered, “WEED FOR SALE!!!” last week on a page called “Bemidji Area Online Sale.” The page allows people to advertise items such as cars, tools, baby clothes and electronics.

There was also a photo of a dozen glass jars containing what looks like marijuana.

But Chief Mike Mastin said Monday officers located the account holder from which the ad was posted. The chief says the man’s friends hacked into his account and posted it without him knowing.

He says the friends took the photo off a 2009 news story. He says there was nothing criminal about what happened and they wouldn’t pursue it further.
