POLK COUNTY, Fla. – An elderly woman is accused of taking a bag of methamphetamine to the doctor to be tested because she was worried about smoking it.

The Miami Herald reported that Barbara Lee Ray, 73, of Polk County, Fla., asked her doctor to test the meth because she was worried it was doing harm.

Ray had been using the drug for about a month, but it remains uncertain where she got it or why she was smoking it, according to the paper.

Deputies said she went to Complete Care Family Medicine Associates on Nov. 5 to test the product, which came back positive for meth.

Ray was booked into the Polk County jail on two counts of possession of methamphetamine and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released two days after visiting the doctor.
