73-year-old Minnesota puffer facing prison for 30-bowl-per-day habit


This, times 30.

Ray Martin McFeters isn’t shy about his drug habit. The 73-year-old Air Force veteran lives in the rural Minnesota town of Aitkin, right on the north end of Mille Lacs Lake. He’s been smoking pot most of his life, currently up to about 25-30 bowls a day, according to a recent interview with the Mille Lacs Messenger. “I go through about an ounce every couple of weeks,” he tells the paper.
McFeters was recently charged in Aitkin County with distribution or possession of “more than 42.5 grams” of marijuana and failure to attach tax stamps to the marijuana. The latter charge alone could carry up to 7 years in prison and $14,000 in fines, according to the complaint.The Minneapolis City Pages has the full, strange tale and an active comment section debating it.
