Ha! Nice one, Sheriff...


After a tip, sheriff's deputies got a search warrant for a home in Jackson, Miss. Sure enough, they found drugs. The homeowner, Millie Steverson, 62, was arrested, even though she protested that she needs the pot to treat her glaucoma.

Investigators note the haul from the house included 30 pounds of marijuana, plus crack cocaine, ecstasy, a gun (as a convicted felon, Steverson is not allowed to possess firearms), and a stolen car. "I understand she smokes the drugs to help her glaucoma," Hinds County Sheriff Malcolm McMillin said. "By the time she got through smoking all of that, she would have X-ray vision."
