>> Read more trending stories  

Dax Holt, a former producer at TMZ, recorded a conversation he had with his daughter, Skylar, about an awkward exchange he had with her teacher.

“When I got to your school, your teacher said, ‘I heard you have a lot of weed at your house,'” Holt told Skylar. “Are we growing weed at our house?”

“Yeah,” said Skylar.

“A lot of it?” asks Holt, to which Skylar responds, “Yeah, just a little bit, but it’s going to grow a lot.”

“Do you want to show people what you’re talking about?” Holt asks.

Skylar then leads him to the backyard to point out the “weed.”

Watch the video below:

    Orkin releases list of cities with most bedbugs

    WSOCTV.com contributed to this report.

    new report released Wednesday morning names Baltimore as the city with the most bedbugs in the country.

    >> Read more trending stories  

    The Maryland city moved up nine spots from its ranking last year. 

    Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York City and Columbus, Ohio, rounded out the top five.

    Atlanta (No. 16); Charlotte, North Carolina (No. 19); Boston (No. 28); Dayton, Ohio (No. 32); Seattle (No. 34); Orlando (No. 44); and Miami (No. 46) made the top 50.

    The cities were ranked based on treatment data from the metro areas where Orkin performed the most bedbug treatments from Dec. 1, 2015, to Nov. 30, 2016.

    "We have more people affected by bedbugs in the United States now than ever before," Orkin entomologist and director of technical services Ron Harrison said. "They were virtually unheard of in the U.S. 10 years ago."

    Orkin calls bedbugs "hitchhikers" that travel from place to place.

    Orkin officials think bedbugs have become prevalent because they've built up a resistance to chemicals.

    They also said you might not know you have bedbugs because many people don't have a physical reaction to the insect's bites.

    SolarCity wants 'solar shingles' on 5 million more roofs

    SolarCity wants to persuade 5 million American households to replace their roofs with solar-energy shingles.

    Instead of installing panels on top of an existing roof, the company is working on "solar shingles" that would replace a home's roof and absorb solar energy.

    >> Read more trending stories  

    About 1 million Americans have solar panels on their homes, so adding an additional 5 million to that list would be quite the accomplishment.

    But the company seems to think the solar shingles can fix some of the biggest problems associated with solar energy.

    Elon Musk, the company's chairman, said the solar roofing looks better and lasts longer than normal roofing.

    And Musk said installing or replacing the solar shingles shouldn't be much different than when it is for those who use regular roofing materials.

    But the company will still need to keep costs down if it wants to see mainstream adoption.

    The Dow Chemical Company recently had to discontinue its line of solar shingles because the product wasn't selling -- likely because they were more expensive and less efficient than typical solar panels.

    SolarCity isn't talking about the price or energy output of its shingles yet.

    Right now, it's in the middle of a merger with Tesla Motors, which could open up the option to package the solar shingles with Tesla products such as the home battery. That could make the adoption process for solar roofing easier and cheaper.
