"When officers pulled Short over it was for a routine traffic stop. Since he's on supervised release for previous meth sales they searched his car.

Meth is a one way ticket in the express lane to hell.

I guess it's not your grandfather's retirement community anymore. Of course, this could be an Obama caregiver who is providing stimulants or sedatives to the elderly without making them wait for their pharmacists to fill the order.
You can’t live on just social security, you know!
Yes it is.
Yeah, it beats collecting aluminum cans and plastic bottles.
He is 64 for those wondering.
My Dentist Office Manager was reading a trade Journal about Meth and why it destroys teeth. In simple terms, Meth turns off the signal to your brain to produce saliva. Even though Saliva is unpleasant, it is the real, natural and only protector of your teeth.
“Just shocking someone that age would do that”
A grown ass adult from the hippy dippy baby boom era? Not so surprising, really.
