A 74-year-old Taumarunui woman has admitted dealing cannabis over a 10 year period.

Pauline Kay Stafford yesterday pleaded guilty to one charge of possessing cannabis for supply in the Hamilton District Court. 

The offending spanned between February 23, 2002 and February 23, this year.

Stafford's offending is not on the scale of Wellington's cannabis granny - who's offending was worth millions of dollars - rather, around 15 tinnies a week.

Stafford was remanded on bail to reappear for sentencing in February.

Would a pedestrian and cycleway bridge connecting the Waikato River's east and west banks make Hamilton more appealing?

Yes, it will be a great attraction

Maybe, if it is executed correctly

No, it won't

It is just another pipe dream
