‘A 68-year-old grandmother convicted of growing cannabis at her Northumberland home has been given a 250 hour community service order.
Patricia Tabram, from Humshaugh, had denied charges of possessing and cultivating the drug when she appeared at Carlisle Crown Court.
She was arrested in 2005 when plants and growing equipment were seized. [..]
After the hearing she said: “I’m going to go on medicating.
“The police can come to my house every week. I’ll give them a cup of tea.
“I’ll give them a decent biscuit, which of course will be medicated and I’ll give them some cannabis so they charge me again and again and again.”‘
