Although Mike had prepared me for the worst, it still came as a shockIt is the second time he has been sent down for the offence. But he has vowed to carry on with his fight to get a Home Office licence to allow the club to supply cannabis to its members without prosecution.“Mike says the battle goes on,” said partner Abigail Bodilly. “He’s still upbeat, but then he’s always upbeat.
