February 08, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A British prosecutor says an elderly milkman supplied customers with cannabis as well as bottles of milk.

Robert Holding, 72, delivered marijuana as he made his daily rounds in the town of Burnely, in northwestern England.

Prosecutor Sarah Statham said Friday that Holding offered the drug to elderly customers suffering from aches and pain. She says the customers left notes for Holding on their doorsteps to order the marijuana.

Holding pleaded guilty and was given a suspended jail sentence of 36 months.
