73-year-old woman was worried about the meth she was smoking, so she took it to her doctor

POLK COUNTY, Fla. — An elderly woman is accused of taking her methamphetamine to the doctor for testing after she became concerned about the drug’s effect on her.

Barbara Lee Ray, 73, of Polk County, Florida, asked her doctor to test the meth because she was worried it was doing harm, the Miami Herald reported.

Ray had been using the drug for about a month, but it remains uncertain where she got it or why she was smoking it, according to the paper.

Deputies said she went to Complete Care Family Medicine Associates on Nov. 5 to test the product, which came back positive for meth.

Ray was booked into the Polk County jail on two counts of possession of methamphetamine and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia.

She was released two days after visiting the doctor.

2. Drug laws are an abomination, but her actions were nonetheless remarkably stupid.

3. It sounds like she is not in possession of all her faculties

So I hope there is a social worker dropping by to check on her in case she starts smoking meth again!

4. I would not have arrested her. Hope the DA drops all charges and sends her cookies.

She's probably in need of mental health services and in home care.

8. I would like them to find out who supplied her

This is elder abuse, and she needs protection.
