Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

Police in­ter­cepted a ve­hi­cle on Au­gust 4 on Rankin Street, Ma­reeba and charged the driver with one count of drug driv­ing. Ap­pear­ing be­fore the court sel­f­rep­re­sented Narelle Frances Mont­gomery, 44, said she had been smok­ing mar­i­juana and had been pulled over twice be­fore. “I work Mon­day to Satur­day and it is very stress­ful and I use it to just calm my­self,” she said. Mag­is­trate Tom Braes said Mont­gomery should seek a med­i­cal pre­scrip­tion be­cause if she con­tin­ued to use the drug she could face more penal­ties. She was fined $600 with a con­vic­tion recorded and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for six months.
