How do we (as a society) get to this point. A 65 year old woman is busted for dealing pot so she can raise her 4 granddaughters after the death of their mom.

So 65 year old Candace Kelly has been sentenced to 15-30 months in state prison in Pennsylvania for distributing marijuana. She admitted that she sold the marijuana to raise money to raise her granddaughters. My first question is ...was government aid available to her or did she fall through the cracks? Did anyone reach out to her and try to help her find social services? What in the world gave her the idea to deal marijuana? What will become of the granddaughters if she is sent to jail? It is just a sad story all the way around. Is it a statement on where we are as a society?
