(Newser) – Meet Ola Mae Agee, perhaps the world’s oldest drug dealer. The 87-year-old grandmother was found guilty last week of selling cocaine from the living room of her Florida home after an undercover police officer bought $20 worth of crack from her, the Pensacola News Journal reports. Agee, who served probation twice while in her 70s for possession with intent to sell, was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Notes a sheriff’s office spokesperson, “Eighteen months at that age is a lot worse than a 25-year-old getting 18 months.”

Was Granny a crackhead also? "Grandma Crackhead' sounds like a children's book. All new meaning to "to grandmothers house we go." Poor dear, she may expire in the pokey.

May be it was all intended.....if I at 87 could not afford health care or nursing home it may not be a bad idea to maybe throw a brick at a window of a federal building and go to jail (federal prisons are supposed to be nicer)....where you get a home and health care and do not spend out the rest of your days alone.
