​A 90-year-old grandmother suspected of selling cannabis was arrested Friday after police raided her home and found more than 170 pounds of marijuana.

A squad of armed South African police officers with drug dogs stormed the elderly woman’s home and discovered the pot stashed in multiple bags, according to the Daily Mail.

“This lady was quiet, old and looked like an angel sent from God,” said the rather poetically inclined Police Inspector Kobeli Mokheseng.

“But we received a tip-off two weeks ago that a lot of people were going into her house and coming out looking happy,” Mokheseng said.

Wow, happy people? That will not do! Obviously, law enforcement was called for, don’t you think?

“We sent in a drugs team who were prepared for a shootout, but they soon realized there was nobody to fight,” Mokheseng said.

Police found three types of marijuana, locally known as dagga, stashed in the pensioner’s garden shed.

The elderly lady, who said she lived alone in the four-room home east of Johnannesburg, South Africa, was arrested and taken into custody.

“She will spend the weekend behind bars, educating the police officers on what she was doing,” Inspector Mokheseng said.

“This was quite an extensive operation going on, with three types of the drug — called Swazi, Local and Skans,” Mokheseng said.

Wow, three separate strains? Granny’s got it goin’ on.

“We found money in plastic bags ready for the bank,” Mokheseng said. “She was making quite a lot of cash.”

“We understand she has many children and grandchildren, and we are trying to contact them,” the police inspector said.

The woman is scheduld to appear before Alberton Magistrates’ Court on Monday. She is charged with possession of illegal substances and selling cannabis.

FORT WORTH, Tex. (NBC) — A Texas police officer was arrested Wednesday after he was caught with marijuana while on duty.

Officer Wesley Lamb faces charges of drug possession and tampering with evidence.

Police said the investigation was the result of a tip from an unidentified person who reported witnessing Lamb smoke marijuana in uniform, in his patrol car, while on duty.

Undercover officers assigned to a special internal affairs investigative unit then set up a sting operation.

An undercover officer posed as a citizen who wanted to turn in 86 grams of marijuana that he found to police.

Lamb did not report the incident or bring the drugs to the property room, police said.

Instead, investigators followed Lamb to his house where he moved the marijuana to his personal vehicle.

Investigators later executed a search warrant on his car and house and recovered the drugs.

Lamb is free on $7,500 bond.

Police Chief Jeff Halstead announced the charge and resignation of Officer Lamb at a Wednesday news conference.

Halstead also said he’ll reorganize the department to increase field supervision of officers.

“I’m ashamed,” said police chief Jeffrey Halstead. “This will not be tolerated.”

The Active Ingredients

Cannabis products include marijuana, hashish, and hashish oil.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) gets a user high, a larger THC content will produce a stronger high. Without THC you don’t get high.

CBD (Cannabidiol) increases some of the effects of THC and decreases other effects of THC. High levels of THC and low levels of CBD contribute to a strong, clear headed, more energetic high.

Cannabis that has a high level of both THC and CBD will produce a strong head-stone that feels almost dreamlike. Cannabis that has low levels of THC and high levels of CBD produces more of a stoned feeling. The mind feels dull and the body feels tired.

CBN (Cannabinol) is produced as THC ages and breaks down, this process is known as oxidization. High levels of CBN tend to make the user feel messed up rather than high.

One of the highest THC levels in marijuana?

Answer

White Russian is a stable cross of AK-47 and White Widow (a prize winning indica clone). Medium height, consistent plants and dense, very resinous flower tops (crystals appear after about 5 weeks of flowering). With such a strong indica background, the plants smell quite strong during both their growth and flowering period. In an independent seed comparison in which over 150 different seed-strains were grown out in a greenhouse, the White Russian came out as the strongest plant (22% THC levels).
