Veteran Eastenders actor Pam St Clements has called for cannabis to be legalised in the UK and admitted she uses it every day.
The 75-year-old – who played Pat Butcher on the soap for 26 years – suffers from polymyalgia rheumatic – a condition which causes pain – stiffness and inflammation in the muscles around the shoulders – neck and hips.
St Clement – one of Eastenders’ longest-serving cast members – revealed she uses cannabis-infused to oil to relieve the aches and pains caused by the condition.
The actor recently appeared on the ITV show Gone To Pot: American Road Trip – a three-part series which sees five celebrities embark on an American road trip to learn about marijuana and explore whether it should be legalised.
Viewers back home could not get enough of the scenes where St Clement smokes marijuana with nuns and takes a hit on a bong.
