The Lincolnshire cannabis farmers join a band of do-gooding criminals | Duncan Campbell

The Lincolnshire couple jailed this week for three years for growing and selling cannabis used much of the profits to pay for medical treatment for people in a Kenyan village. They bought a computer for an eye hospital, paid for life-saving operations for people suffering from gangrene and helped pay the school fees for local children. The judge who sentenced them at Lincoln crown court told Michael Foster, 62, and Susan Cooper, 63, that: "I am sure you were doing good things in Kenya with your drugs money, whether that was to appease your consciences, I can only speculate."
