Meet the soldier causing a bit a of ruckus in the Canadian military.
In a court martial due to start August 3, Bombardier Chelsea Cogswell faces 18 charges and a possible two year prison sentence.
Her grievous crime?
Bombing civilians? Torturing POWs? Black Market Profiteering?
No, Bombardier Cogswell baked cupcakes.
She stands accused of serving Marijuana-laced cupcakes to her unsuspecting fellow soldiers. Oh, the horror!
The military brass is up-in-arms, citing safety concerns because the nine gunners who ate the cupcakes took part in a live-fire exercise involving explosives and weapons drills.
While happy, high, hungry gunners might not be at their best in a weapons test, if we’re talking safety the military command might want to do something about their abysmal record in prosecuting sexual assault cases within the ranks.
