Weed-Selling Grandma!!

When I first read this story, I thought it was hilarious. http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2007-01-27-ariz-granny_x.htm

But soon after reading it, I could not believe that they were going to give this little old lady 12 1/2 years for a first time offense. Then her lawyer settled for three years and a $150,000.00 fine. Three years for a first offense? And a steep fine for someone who gets $275.00 a month for taking care of her granddaughter? I don't condone drugs whatsoever, no matter what kind. But I had to ask myself how is it that a Roman Catholic priest got less time for molesting 250 children. Something to think about folks!

Okay! I think society has it priorities all jacked up. Unbelievable!

It is quite unbelievable, Gwen. As Papa Smurf would say, "Amazing!"

You're mischaracterizing this one. Read what her own lawyer said. On the one hand, she claims she didn't know. On the second hand, she talks about her car being "loaded". On the third hand, her lawyer says it was to support her bingo habit.

I think the jury read her right - she was a runner and knew it.

Twill,
I don't know about that. I feel really badly for her, but we all have our own opinions. No one really knows what happened except her. If she has a conscience, it will wear on her.
