Sir: When 19 years old, I was convicted and fined pounds 100 for possessing (not dealing) less than one-sixteenth of an ounce of cannabis at the Reading Festival. I too come from a "good family".

Now 27, I wish to study for a PGCE and teach primary children. Does the Home Secretary think I would be suitable for such a post? I find myself hoping that William Straw is also convicted. The weed will not harm his prospects as it has mine.
