Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

JULIE Ma­ree Nash, 57, of Isis River, has been fined $1700 af­ter she was caught with 279 grams of mar­i­juana.

Po­lice pros­e­cu­tor Se­nior Con­sta­ble Hay­ley Glover told the Childers Mag­is­trate Court po­lice at­tended Nash’s prop­erty on June 25, where they lo­cated 190g of mar­i­juana mixed with other ma­te­rial in the woman’s walk-in wardrobe.

A fur­ther 89g of mar­i­juana mixed with other ma­te­rial was found in a plas­tic bag, the court heard.

The woman’s de­fence ar­gued Nash had on­go­ing is­sues with her health and used mar­i­juana to self­med­i­cate for pain re­lief.

Mag­is­trate Gary Fin­ger told Nash to find an­other way to al­le­vi­ate her pain.

“There would cer­tainly be some re­lief you get from pain but there’s le­gal ways to do it and you can’t use drugs,” he said.

“You come be­fore the courts again for this sort of of­fence, es­pe­cially of this quan­tity, there’s a very real risk you’ll do prison time…

“It’s not a very pleas­ant place to be.”

A con­vic­tion was recorded.
