Drugs and democracy

The Neath Guardian reports that a Councillor who once passed a lit cannabis spliff around a council meeting is standing down after 21 years of dedicated service.

Lynne Siegers, who represents Blaenhondden Community Council's Cilfrew ward recalled an occasion around 15 years ago when police visits to Council meetings were more regular and graphically informative:

'She said: "Back in the days when we met at the civic centre, a councillor asked the policeman at the meeting, 'What is cannabis?'

He said he'd bring some along - and he did.

"He lit it and we were passing a spliff around. If anyone had ever come in at that meeting they would've wondered what it was."

How things change.
