Mom's confrontation with daughter over "drugs" turns into hilarious viral tweet

- A Texas mother’s assumptions about “drugs” in her daughter’s room, resulted in a hilarious text message exchange gone viral.    

16-year-old Ashley Banks asked her mom to move her calculator to the mailbox for a friend to pick up, and her mom found a bag of brightly colored capsules while doing so.  Her mom assumed the capsules were drugs and sent Ashely a picture of the mystery capsules with a text saying, “What are these? Ashley Carol I will not have drugs in my house. Come home right now. As soon as your dad comes home from California we will discuss your consequences."

Ashley responded with a bunch of laughing emojis and told her mom to put the capsules in water. 

Ashley’s mom quickly realized that the capsules were nothing more than Magic Grow capsules when they turned into dinosaur sponges in the water.  Her mom texted back saying, “Nevermind you don’t have to come home.”

Ashley tweeted screenshots of the text message exchange with her mom, and the funny misunderstanding has been retweeted more than 34,000 times and has more than 47,000 likes.
