The last time we saw Pam St Clement’s Pat Butcher on EastEnders she was appearing in the middle of poor Peggy Mitchell’s final hallucinations but many viewers thought they were having a rather different kind of hallucinogenic dream when they witnessed her smoking marijuana in ITV’s Gone to Pot.
St Clement, who suffers from a medical condition which could allegedly be improved through the use of medicinal marijuana, was spotted smoking weed with nuns on TV last night. The new series sees the actress – and several other well-known faces – travel through the USA investigating the benefits and drawbacks of legal recreational and medicinal marijuana.

This all seemed a tad too familiar…

But it wasn’t exactly the wildest thing to happen to a Butcher, either…
