73-Year-Old Arrested Faces Prison For Pot

Ray McFeters says he had much less marijuana than authorties charge and no intent to sell.

“I never have enough for myself,” he said.

On June 6, Ray Martin McFeters, 73, was charged in Aitkin County District Court with distribution or possession of more than 42.5 grams of marijuana and failure to attach tax stamps to the marijuana.

McFeters is also charged with felony possession of “not a small amount of marijuana” as stated in the criminal complaint filed with the Aitkin County District Court.

McFeters is a retired computer programmer who lives with his wife Patty on the north shore of Mille Lacs Lake. He learned to write code while serving four years with the United States Air Force in crypto maintenance during the Cuban missile crisis. He was honorably discharged in 1964.
