Do you think the 71 year old lady was with it or a vunerable adult

I don't know but if you are srious, I am wondering the same thing. Of course her age is is not exempt from the grug problem. In fact she is right in the age group for the growing drug problem, since the 50's, 60's.... No? But if she is involved voluntarilly, I'm surprised she made it to her age.

See! The Northstar Train has only been operating for two months and already there is a Meth Lab in Big Lake. I remember before the train when ig Lake was a nice friendly family town. Now that it has a welfare train, it is already going down hill.

When is the last time you heard/read about any Black people cooking meth? That's white folks' territory. Black people don't even USE meth.

I blame the zoning board of Sherburne County for this mess. If they didn't require people to have 2-1/2 acres before they built none of this would happen. If we were forced to live on 60-foot wide lots like North Minneapolis none of these meth problems would have even gotten a foothold here. It's a shame Sherburne County wasn't more forward thinking like Minneapolis is!

They say a good cook can always get work.Meth is not bathtub gin,somebody trained her! Nice disquise being old,having crumbling bad teeth at that age is normal.Taking meth can do it to you before you're age 20,stay away from it! Not a racial thing,it's a cash thing and an addiction thing.Meth should be your very last choice,users are miserable long after the high wears off.People in their twenties can look like their forties and fifties by using.It is bad stuff!

You completely missed that sarcastic softball that "Meth Head" tossed out for us. By the way: Aren't you being racist by insinuating blacks and whites have different stereotypical behaviors?(said in my most snarky, sarcastic tone).

Are you sure she is 71? She just might look that old. She probably didn't know anything about it anyway. That's a standard excuse.

Like another poster said, maybe this lady is really 29 but the meth makes her look 71. Or, maybe once you hit a certain age it has a reverse effect. Maybe she's really 86 and looks like 71? Or, maybe she never got over the 60's and didn't think the Summer Of Love should end?

Police on;y go after easy prey that can not aford legal concil. These people were set up like 90% of the cases. They work on conviction rates detroying people . A greedy fee harming the masses for personal and agency gain. Thats why they are now called criminal justice systems because they are criminal systems for just us the greedy few.

HUH??? Sounds to me like "somebody" broke the law and has some sour grapes. The police go after the law breakers, period. They don't just pick on the "poor criminals". Don't break the law and you will be fine.

How many stories like this are we going to hear as people continue to struggle to find work in this economy and people turning to the black market to make a buck? Where will the money come from to house all of the drug prisoners? Will it make a dent in the problem and rehabilitating people to get off drugs? The more people we arrest and the more money we spend artificially inflating the value of drugs due to their illegal status, the worse the problem gets. It's time for a new approach. Meth was created during prohibition. If there is any glaring example of how prohibition has failed, it is meth. The health ramifications alone are enough for any sane person to avoid it. The users are obviously insane and need help.

If we learn that all three perpetrators at white with good paying jobs, can we round up every white person in Minnesota that isn't on welfare and throw them all in jail?
Sure, why not!
