Ex-cop who smuggled cannabis oil into Scotland for epileptic son faces police investigation

A former police officer who smuggled cannabis oil into Scotland for her epileptic son is facing a police investigation.

Lisa Quarrell, 38, has been bringing cannabis-based Bedrolite from the Netherlands to treat six-year-old Cole’s crippling seizures since March.

Police Scotland said last night that she may have to explain her actions to officers after her story was featured in a BBC documentary on Wednesday.

A spokeswoman added: “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.”

The medical cannabis oil contains less than one per cent THC – the psychoactive that gives a feeling of being “high”.
