    Woman, 71, arrested for 'special' plant

    GREENSBORO, N.C. - A 71-year-old woman was arrested on drug charges after a chest-high marijuana plant was found in her yard, a plant she said was meant to keep animals away from her garden.

    A sheriff's deputy saw the plant as he drove past Betty Holt Walker's home earlier this month, according to Capt. Tony Caliendo of the Guilford County Sheriff's Department.

    The deputy stopped to investigate and found five smaller plants behind a shed, as well as marijuana stems and seeds, and a water bong made from a soda bottle inside the house, Caliendo said.

    Walker told the deputy she found the first plant — which had grown to more than 4 feet tall when he saw it — in her garden and repotted it. She said it was a special plant used to keep animals out of her front yard.

    "This wasn't something that was meant to keep animals away," Caliendo said.

    Walker is due in court Sept. 12 to face charges of manufacturing marijuana and felony possession of marijuana. A daughter who lives in the home was unaware the plants were in the yard and was not charged, Caliendo said.

    What a waste of taxpayer dollars to drag an old lady through court and then probably to jail for a silly pot plant.

    If a grandma wants to smoke a spleef she should be allowed to do so, she has earned it.
    Sad thing is she was just using it in her garden and had no intent of smoking it.

    Old lady or not, its always a waste of tax payers money when marijuana busts happen. My buddy went to jail for 2 days and was put of probation for a year for having a gram on him. Retarded....

    I say make beer illegal and Legalize pot!!! (i know some of you dont like that idea but im not a drinker.)
