Cannabis grandma to attempt to oust Hain as MP for Neath

PUBLISHED April 11, 2005

Grandmother Patricia Tabram will be leaving her council bungalow in rural Northumberland this week to head for the hurly-burly of a general election campaign, though minus the cannabis-laced treats which landed her in front of a judge.

Mrs Tabram, who received a six-month suspended jail sentence on Friday for cooking cakes, casseroles and soups pepped up with the drug for friends, revealed yesterday that she was going to take on the secretary of state for Wales, Peter Hain, in his Neath constituency.
