UNIONTOWN, Pa. (CBS/AP) If you're not happy with the grade of pot you just bought, who ya gonna call? The police?

That's exactly what officers in Uniontown, Pa. say happened last week, when a man called them to complain about the marijuana he'd just purchased.

Police say the man told officers he bought the substance earlier last Wednesday and that "it was nasty" when he smoked it.

Uniontown Detective Donald Gmitter says a field test determined the substance wasn't pot after all, but police didn't say what it was.

Even though the 21-year-old man didn't technically buy marijuana, he isn't off the hook.

Sgt. Wayne Brown tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the incident remains under investigation, and the man could face a charge of possessing a counterfeit controlled substance.

Bad day for him all around.
