Granny Is Marijuana Kingpin in Oklahoma?


CRAIG COUNTY, Oklahoma - A 73-year-old Craig County woman was arrested Monday after sheriff's deputies searched her home and found marijuana and $278,000 in cash. A four-month investigation led investigators to what they say is the biggest player in the Grand Lake area drug trade.

"We feel like this is a really big operation," said Sheriff Jimmie Sooter.

The money was seized along with four pounds of marijuana from a house and vehicle four miles east of Vinita off Highway 60.

The amount of confiscated cash is staggering. The suspect is surprising: Darlene Mayes, a 73-year-old grandmother . . . .

Investigators say older folks are becoming more active in drug trafficking. They don't raise as much suspicion and more are turning to drugs as a way to make extra money in their golden years.

"Don't put an age limit on the investigation, because anything can happen," Floyd said.


Hey, if some grand-ma-ma wants to be the AARP version of Pablo Escobar instead of baking muffins and knitting quilts, then more power to her. You think you can survive on social security these days? No way.  She understands economics. So she builds up a little nest egg of a quarter of a million dollars and then here come the cops roughing her up worse than Ben Stiller did to Happy Gilmore's grandmother. Took her money. Took her cars. Probably took her cup of warm milk. There just ain't no respect for your elders anymore.

You know, if our president issued one of his executive orders legalizing marijuana, he'd be re-elected in a land slide.

Good lord. Leave granny and the pot smokers alone.

Drinking has caused way more damage than any pot smoking munchie having slow driving hippie.

And, I'm talking about smoking pot ONLY. Not mixing it with anything else.

everybody knows pot is a gateway drug that always leads to herrin and whiskee drankin abuse..

Just legalize all drugs, lower the prices, tax them and sell them in drug stores. Use the tax money for rehab clinics. Then take the Hollywood glamor out of the movies and show what really happen from drug abuse. Most young people start out doing drugs because it was cool to be wasted like in the last movie they saw. That my friends is the sad truth!

Romney would have laid her off, contracted out growing, and then sold the operation to a foreign investor.

Obammy will have Eric Holder unleash the New Black Panthers on her because she is white.

So she goes to prison, she'll have 100% health care, three meals a day and a bed and a room for as long as she's there which might be the rest of her life.

Nope, not better. May be worse, even.

ADam Sandler was in Happy Gilmore. It wasn't his character that terrorized his granny.

If you legalize pot, please also legalize meth, heroin, LSD, rooms, etc. Need it all out there so that eventually, hopefully, the users will all die.

Of all the pot smokers I have known over the years, very few went on to harder drugs. The real gateway drug in my opinion is nicotene. And it was intentionally increased to purposefully addict the users by corporate America with government approval.

Thanks for the update 10:18.

Everyone lived high on the hog with Bush-O-nomics. Things were great. Well, maybe regular wage erning families suffered a little, but that is their own fault for not pulling themselves up by their own boot straps, and making more of themselves. All those poor workers have to do is get one of the 1/2 million dollar per year paying jobs, and they will be doing great. That is their fault if they don't find such a job, lazy bastards.
