Cannabis Grandma applauded by delegates at government drugs conference

The Cannabis Grandma received the only real applause of the day at the government sponsored 'Tackling Drugs, Changing Lives' conference held in London (Nov 30th) when she questioned Home Office Minister, Caroline Flint in front of hundreds of drug workers, senior policemen and government officials. She said:
"Since 1975 I have suffered from 14 side effect health problems from prescription medication - and am afraid to ever use it again. I medicate with fresh cannabis bud in my food. How can I, and millions of other people in my position, obtain and use fresh cannabis without the fear of prosecution?"
At this the audience burst into spontaneous applause!

The canny grandma left the minister, who was obviously not briefed on Sativex or medical cannabis, struggling and unable to answer the question, but the Newcastle pensioner, 67, would not let her get away with it.

As the Minister tried to escape by fielding a question from someone else, the Cannabis Grandma refused to sit down.

Then TV presenter Jon Snow who was chairing the debate noticed her; "You are not very happy with that answer are you? he said.

"No" said Cannabis Grandma "We are afraid to take anything made from pharmacological substances".

Realizing that the Minister knew nothing about the subject in question, Jon Snow pointed to Home Office drugs policy 'Mr Big' VIC HOGG sitting in the audience. He said "Ask Vic" (who is boss of 'Frank'), and suggested that the Cannabis Grandma should send her question to him.

It is a very important question and a lot of people are very excited about it" said Jon Snow, who has supported drug rehabilitation projects for many years.

"Hey Presto, there you are" he said as the Grandma finally sat down, mollified but not satisfied, and determined to track Vic down where ever he was.

Afterwards 'News of the Weed' found Vic Hogg (right) drinking Methodist mulled wine in the 'chill zone' at the conference after party. He is actually a very cool geezer, who supports 'Harm Reduction' and 'User Engagement' and knows the truth about drugs policy; "It's all politics' he once explained to a frustrated, foot stamping drugs reform campaigner.

'News of the Weed' will be the first to reveal his written responce to Cannabis Grandma's question.

Meanwhile Caroline Flint (above), who helped make 'magic mushrooms' illegal, yet bears a striking similarity to the marijuana dealing star of the 'WEED' soap opera on SKY TV (below), looked like she could do with a dose of Sativex - or maybe she would prefer grannies 'organic' hot chocolate?
