This is a story you don't see every day. In Greensboro, North Carolina, a sheriff's deputy arrested a 71 year-old woman for Manufacturing Marijuana and Felony Possession of Marijuana. The deputy said he was just driving by the woman's home when he saw the four-foot-tall potted plant in the woman's yard.
The lady said she had the plant there to keep animals out of her front yard, but the deputy didn't believe her story. He found five smaller plants behind a shed, and in her home she had some seeds and stems and a pop-bottle bong.
I think we may be taking our drug laws a bit too seriously to charge this lady with a felony for growing a little pot for herself. Obviously, there was not enough being grown to consider her a dealer. Personally, I think after surviving over 70 years, she deserves to grow herself a little smoke.
What do you think readers? Should she be charged with a felony? Should she be charged with anything? Should marijuana be legal?
