A 66-year-old Welsh grandmother named Patricia Tabram, who has won local celebrity for lacing her cooking with cannabis, has announced her candidacy for the House of Commons. According to the Daily Mail, she will be representing the Legalise Cannabis Alliance.
Tabram was introduced to the substance last year to relieve her medical problems, and soon after started preparing a variety of cannabis-laced dishes for herself and her friends, including "chicken and leek pies, curries, beef casseroles, chocolate cakes and biscuits." Tabram was arrested and admitted to possession with intent to supply, but was spared jail time.
"If I'm voted for," she told the press, "I'm going to promise people in this country I will fight for the rights of every man and woman to receive safe medication. It's going to be a hell of a long journey and I'll probably be dead before we win the argument."
Tabram is the author of an unpublished manuscript entitled Grandma Eats Cannabis.
