Woman, 75, busted for small pot plant on balcony
September 2, 2005 - azcentral.com

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - A 75-year-old Greek woman has been charged with drug offenses after police in her a sleepy island village spotted a small cannabis plant growing on her balcony, authorities said.

Hariklia Griva, a widowed mother of four from Ayiassos, on the eastern Aegean Sea island of Lesvos, was arrested Wednesday and charged with growing cannabis with the intent of trafficking in the drug. She was released on bail of $2,480.

The retiree, whose late husband was a policeman, told police the 16 inch potted plant grew from seed dropped by her pet canaries. The birds live in a cage on the balcony overlooking a busy Ayiassos street - opposite the local police station.

"I couldn't believe it, when they told me I was being arrested," Griva said. "The plant must have grown from the bird seed. I had no idea what the plant was. I watered it regularly. I thought it looked quite nice."

Intent of trafficking? A 16 inch tall plant? That's a shame. Might as well slap treason on her criminal ass while they're at it.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

Good thing she was in Greece.
If she had been in the States ...
A SWAT team would have shot her from accross the street,
...cause all those pot growers are armed to protect their crops,  you know :wink:

And this boys and girls is the situation in Greece :laugh: In Greece they are all called "Narcotics"

A 75 year old lady arrested? For one small plant? Yes,a small plant is ideal for trafficing ,she might make sooooo much money out of it to buy a Villa with a swimming pool....

Sometimes i wonder about those officers. Yes pot is illegal in Greece,but when you see a 75 yo woman (she has got one foot onto senility for logic's sake) with one plant can you arrest her feeling that you serve your "duty"? Feeling that you have combated "crime" and that you have stopped "an amount of marijuana circulating in the market"?

I would like ,for once ,to have a look into an officer's mind that gladly enforces laws like that with a sense of "duty" and "pride".Gosh,it must be so lonely in there to be a braincell in their brains...
