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.
“Yeah, I grew a few plants,” McFeters said. “I thought I was doing good by not supporting the cartels and everything like that.”
According to the complaint, McFeters had 22 marijuana plants in various stages of growth.
Aitkin County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Guida first heard there was a marijuana grow at the McFeters’ residence in early 2013 through an anonymous tip. According to the complaint, Guida stopped by the house several times but never found anyone home. On April 13, Guida stated that he saw fresh tracks in the snow near McFeter’s mailbox.

Delaware medical marijuana patients in limbo
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, June, 22nd 2013 by THCFinder
In 2011, Delaware became the latest state to legalize medical marijuana through a prescription. Since then, the program has been halted while state leaders figure out how to cope with restrictions from the federal government.
Delaware's neighbors in New Jersey, and more recently Maryland, have approved medical marijuana. New Jersey opened one compassion center in Montclair, and is on its way to opening a second farther south. According to state law, Delaware was to have three centers opened, one in each county, by 2013.
The delay has frustrated medical marijuana patients like "Bob," who lives in New Castle County. Bob asked WHYY to withhold his real name because he's afraid of being arrested.
Pain all day
Bob suffers debilitating pain every day as the result of an accident a few years ago. "It's a whole lot of constant pain all day, everyday. The pain just doesn't stop."
Two years ago, he thought Delaware would finally make it legal for him to access the drug that he believes best helps him manage that pain. "If I have good medicinal cannabis, I wouldn't have to take any of the opiates, wouldn't have to take any of the Xanax."
Bob says the marijuana eases his pain, while still allowing him to feel like himself. "When I take all these [pills], I can't drive, can't really hold a conversation. I feel like a zombie. When I'm on pot I can actually be active and talk to people."
