Woman accused of allowing teens to smoke pot at her home

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGTOWN, Ariz. -

A Phoenix woman has been accused of allowing teenagers to smoke pot at her home, located near 116th Ave and Peoria.

63-year-old Kathleen Dewey is behind bars, facing 10 different drug-related charges, including possession.

The disabled Air Force veteran was taken into custody this past Saturday after police say she had been smoking marijuana with a few teens in the neighborhood.

Her husband admits that the teens would smoke at their home, but says it was a coping tool, helping them deal with the suicide of an 18-year-old who lived at their home earlier this year.

"They would come over and give her a little bit of weed here and there and stuff like that," said Dwight Dewey, the suspect's husband. "I'm sorry the kids were smoking pot, yes I understand that but yeah I know it's against the law."

Although the teens were allowed to smoke at their home, Dewey's husband said they never actually provided the teens with the drugs.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
