TROY — The alleged pot-smoking grandma appeared at her arraignment in common pleas court Monday to answer to charges that she smoked marijuana with her grandson and her granddaughter’s boyfriend.

Catherine J. Davis, 52, entered not guilty pleas to a pair of felony corrupting another with drugs charges, which are fourth-degree felonies that each carry a potential prison sentence of between six to 18 months.

Davis was given a recognizance bond at the court hearing, but was told she is to have no contact with any minors, specifically her grandson.

According to the Troy Police Department, Davis allegedly smoked pot with her 14-year-old grandson and her granddaughter’s boyfriend, 16, on March 17.

Police began investigating the case after the 14-year-old boy told police he smoked pot with Davis after the boy was being unruly.

As a result of that investigation, the Troy Police Department executed a search warrant at Davis’ home and they recovered marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
