Losing the Farm


Boris Petrov, a Russian immigrant, just got busted for running a marijuana farm out of his house. He says his family was forced to start the farm after he lost a poker game to some Russian mobsters. So who ends up in handcuffs? Apparently, his 74-year-old mother-in-law, who was found cleaning the plants when the police barged in:

Ludiya Gurinovich, who speaks no English and used Petrov as an interpreter, was confused and crying as she was led to prison in handcuffs after being arraigned Wednesday on felony counts of criminal conspiracy to manufacture a controlled substance and other charges, officials said.
