WOMAN LET FAMILY SMOKE DOPE
A WOMAN who allowed cannabis to be smoked at home has been fined. Pauline Wilkinson, 41, of Furness Drive, Mixenden, Halifax, admitted allowing the smoking of cannabis to take place on May 8.
Andy Wills, prosecuting, told Calderdale magistrates cannabis resin and bush, plus scales and cash, were found at her home.
"She admitted she allowed other members of her family to smoke cannabis," Mr Wills said.
Maggie Wood, for Wilkinson, also said Wilkinson used the class C drug to help ease back pain.
"She says she would prefer them to be in the house smoking rather than out on the streets.
"It's nothing more sinister than that."
Magistrates ordered her to pay a UKP100 fine plus costs.
