In Lebanon, Ohio, an 85 year old man was arrested for attempting to smuggle marijuana to his grandson who is serving time in state prison for a robbery conviction. Apparently, someone tipped off corrections officials, and they arrested the old man at the prison. He now faces seven years in prison himself and a fine up to $15,000.
Now, granted, he probably aught not attempt to sneak a little ganja into jail, but I think seven years is an awful steep price to pay. Heck, seven days is to much. The man was just trying to help his grandson ease the pain of jail. Given the fact that pot tends to make smokers laid back and nonaggressive, prison officials might want to consider handing it out, instead of busting a kindly grandpa trying to bring his grandson a quarter bag.
And by the way, who's the jackass that ratted out the old guy? That was just mean.
