Milk & Doobies

A British milkman was arrested by the bobbies for dropping off more than bottles of milk; he was delivering marijuana as well.

Prosecutors said that 72-year-old milkman Robert Holding was deliving marijuana to other elderly customers who complained of aches and pains. After pleading guilty, Holding was given a suspended 36-month sentence for being a senior dealer.

British prosecutor Sarah Statham explained that just like any milkman, Holding would receive written orders left on customers' doorsteps.
