Geriatric Drug Dealers – People want Privacy Back

Just days before a 79-year-old granny was supposed to have hip surgery, she was arrested under the suspicion of drug dealing. After one of the buyers of the alleged 79-year-old drug dealing granny informed the police about the senior’s unusual activity, Atlanta Police narcotics officers searched the granny’s home and found more than nine pounds of marijuana and more than $130,000 cash.
