She has declared that the police can come round once a week and she'll give them a nice cup of tea and good quality biscuits. (Medicalised)

the bulk buying amused me and the fact she carried on talking off camera!

I wonder how she came to the attention of the police in the first place?

Yes! I saw her on film stating they could just come on back and charge her.

What a WASTE of taxpayer's money.

bit hard to give her 250 hours community work though.

It seems harsh, but if it was a teenager doing it, nobody would have any sympathy. She can't exactly be allowed to flout the law jsut because of her age.

But who is she harming?

Teenagers don't usually use cannabis as a painkiller after trying all possible conventional medicines.

yeah, fair point, but I do think I would have more sympathy for her if she was at least discreet. She's been on tv, even published a book called 'grandma eats cannabis'. It's hardly setting a good example to kids.

Kelly makes a very valid point

To do that 250 hours community service, she's going to have to take cannabis. Otherwise, she'll be too incapacitated by her disability to do it.

Actually I think she is setting a good example. She's saying the law is an ass, and should be changed. It's not good enough to leave discreet MS suffererers to bake it in their biscuits, it's unfair on them that they have to risk a criminal record to have decent medication.

You can disagree with her about whether it should be made legal or not, but I think from a principled point of view, she's doing the right thing. She's not fighting for the right to be discreet, she's fighting for the right of sufferers to have medication without having to hobnob with criminals and without risking a criminal record themselves. Fair enough, I think.

Caligula - I think you're right, she's taking a stand, and therefore being discreet would defeat the object.
