Police say they are “assessing criminality” after an East Kilbride mum admitted smuggling cannabis oil into the country to save her severely epileptic son’s life.
In the hard-hitting BBC documentary Disclosure: Can Cannabis Save My son? ex-cop Lisa Quarrell told how she had broken the law by bringing cannabis-based Bedrolite from the Netherlands to treat six-year-old Cole Thomson.
According to the Home Office, it is illegal to bring the drug into the country without an import licence.
The mum-of-two told the East Kilbride News yesterday she hasn’t yet had any contact from the police.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “No complaint has been made regarding this issue.
“However, we are currently looking into the circumstances surrounding this situation following media coverage to assess criminality.”
