Wonder what you make of the teaching assistant Nicola Cooper who provides her children with cannabis? This week, she was ordered by a judge to do 200 hours’ community work after police found £200 worth of cannabis resin in her Suffolk home, where she was supplying it to her teenage son and daughter so they wouldn’t have to visit street dealers.
Smoking cannabis more than doubles the risk of psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia. Immense damage can be done to the growing brains of children when they smoke the high strength cannabis available today. In their defence, Nicola Cooper and her husband called themselves ‘liberal parents’. Cooper, who is 43, said she herself had used cannabis ‘on and off’ since she was 18 and she probably not only supplied her children with the drug but also smoked it with them.
So, she supplies her kids with cannabis, even smokes it with them, and her only defence is that she and her husband are "liberals"? Insanity might have made a more plausible defence!
