Grandma faces eviction for using medical cannabis

A campaign to support Pat Tabram (the 'Grandma who Eats Cannabis') is being launched to prevent her cruel and vindictive eviction from her home because she publicly refuses to stop self medicating with natural organic cannabis, and won't keep her mouth shut.

The Cannabis Grandma, Pat Tabram has received a letter telling her to appear in Court on July 6th, to face possible eviction from her housing association rented house.

Pat is almost 69-years-of-age, and admits to using about 0.1 (one tenth) of a gram a day in her food as medication for several long term health conditions. She chooses to do this rather than use the many prescribed drugs on offer through the NHS, which she found did not help, and in fact carried the risk of many very serious possible side-effects.

She was recently found guilty of cannabis cultivation and given an unusually harsh sentence of 200 hours community service and ordered to pay £1000 costs.

Her local housing association for her home in Humshaugh, then told her that if they believe that she is using cannabis they will evict her, and put that on suspended notice for two years.

After the court case and since, Pat defiantly told the press that she will continue to medicate with cannabis.

Now, apparently the local KGB style police, who have been harassing her for years, have asked the Housing Association to take the case to court on July 6 to evict her.
