A West Valley City father told police he grew marijuana with his son so he could be a "cool dad," according to court documents.

The 41-year-old father was charged with felonies for drug production and child endangerment on Thursday in state court in Salt Lake City. Court papers say police received a tip he was cultivating marijuana in his basement. When police served a search warrant, they found plants and supplies. The father's 17-year-old son was living at the home and the father said they were growing marijuana together, court papers say.
