No point in lying. Pot is pot. (Repeat 170 times.)

Michelle L. Farnum did not seem surprised when Oak Lawn police knocked on her door Monday afternoon. Asked if she knew why officers were there, the 46-year-old woman had no doubt.

“Yes, because of what I have growing in my back yard,” she said, according to police. “My marijuana plants.”

All 170 of them, according to police.

Farnum, who told officers she recently had suffered a stroke, was charged with production of marijuana and possession of marijuana, police said.

“She made a comment to the guys that she was using it for her medical issues,” Oak Lawn police Division Chief Mike Kaufmann said. “But just because of the sheer number, we had no choice but to charge her.”
