    Patricia Tabram of Humshaugh, England. Police arrested the 68-year-old grandmother for growing some pot in her walk-in wardrobe. After striking a plea agreement to do community service, she had this to say:

    Wow. England.

    250 community hours ? Ill bet Blair and Cheney & Bush wont do 1 hr for getting thousands and thousands and thousands killed over no wmds? Who's the criminal ? grandma or these war mongers. Laws that make no sense what so ever except to grow the legal system and the police state.

    Ugh, don't get me started on them.





    Meh, too late. Today, we had the principal tuba from the New York Philharmonic come in for a recital. For these concerts, some old folks from whatever retirement village (or death house, whatever) get bussed in. During some of his pieces, three of the old hags started talking in a normal voice, as if there was nothing going on and they were chatting over some coffee. Hell, even the middle school kids sitting right behind me were better behaved.

    Well, she was spared jail once already. This time, if she goes to jail, I wouldn't care either way.

    It's funny how some old people think they're above laws, rules, and general etiquette just because they're old. It'll be even funnier seeing her behind bars because she seems to think this way.

    The hours are too high but....

    ... at least they showed some common sense. Unlike the Police. Targetting this poor woman is a massive waste of tax payers money. Abstract - I hope you're joking. She's using this stuff for pain relief and doesn't get a hit off it. I heard her on BBC Radio 4 LW which we can get over here and she sounded like a nice lady.

    I saw the news story on the 25 minute BBC News in the States last night. She did sound really nice and she, what she told us, mostly used a small pinch of the stuff in coffe/tea/hot drinks and makes a really good point that one can't get high off just a pinch.

    They probably figured out they'd have to pay for her room, board, and medical care.

    From what I know, she is a nice lady. I think the unfair crack down on drug users in this country is bad, the police should not be wasting tax payers money on old ladies growing a little pot and should instead focus on gang killings and keeping our streets safe...

    In this case, maybe. I'm talking in general. Old people just seem to think that they can get away with stuff because we all owe them.

    In a way, we do owe them. All of our modern advancements are built upon the discoveries of generations past. It's irresponsible to deny that we owe older generations.

    I agree with you in that it's also irresponsible for older generations to feel they get a free pass due to their age. However, in this case I don't think that is what happened.
