Drug-running granny smuggled 2,000 pounds of weed8/27/2012
It's so important in your twilight years to keep the mind and body active. Some old folks get out in the garden or on the golf course. Others practice yoga. But one elderly lady is headed to jail over her choice of retirement activity. A 76-year-old woman from Dusseldorf in Germany has been sentenced to two-and-a-half years for running around 2,000 pounds of Dutch marijuana across the border to drug dealers in Germany over five years. In her defense, her lawyer told the court the illegal activity kept her active and mobile in her old age. Let's hope Sudoku keeps her just as lively. [Source]
