This story amazes me that the government would go after an elderly woman because she cooks with cannabis. Granted she got caught with it once, but isnt there a valid enough arguement that she could use it?

I dont know why this story warrants being blown up in the international media.

Acting on a tip off, police found four cannabis plants growing in a wardrobe at her bungalow in Humshaugh, Northumberland, in September 2005. They also found powdered cannabis in a jar next to her cooker.


Crap... I just woke up and as I was writing this realized you were being sarcastic. Damn I need another cup of coffee!
