Judge: Cannabis will steal away your soul and wreck your head

A judge yesterday told a mother-of-three that if she continued to take herbal cannabis “it will steal away your soul and wreck your head”.

District Judge Barney McElholm also told Caiomhe McConnell to “stay away from that stuff”.

McConnell pleaded guilty at Londonderry Magistrates Court to possessing £25 worth of herbal cannabis which was found on top of her microwave in the kitchen of her Hawthorn Drive home last July 24.

Her house was searched by police officers on foot of a warrant issued under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

The defendant was fined £100 on the possession charge.
