UK: Cannabis gran in court again
The Shields Gazette
Wednesday 04 Jul 2007
CANNABIS gran Patricia Tabram is due in court again this week, where she
could face eviction from her home.
The 68-year-old, of East Lea, Humshaugh, near Hexham, Northumberland,
was found guilty of growing and using the Class-C drug in March.
She insists she uses the drug for pain relief, but bosses at housing
association Milecastle Housing have applied for the right to evict her.
However should it be granted, the association has asked for the order to
be suspended for up to two years, so she can have a second chance.
Bosses say Mrs Tabram, originally from South Shields, is in breach of
her tenancy agreement by growing and using the drug.
But she says she does not understand why she is being targeted, adding:
"I'm not a robber, I'm not a rapist."
Bill Tebay, managing director of Milecastle Housing, said: "It is with
reluctance and regret that Milecastle Housing has applied for a
possession order on the home of Mrs Patricia Tabram, which we have
recommended be suspended for up to 24 months."
