Isle of Man: Cannabis haul so small police had trouble weighing it
A woman has appeared in court for having an amount of cannabis so small police had difficulty weighing it.
Tanya Margery Corkill, of Alder Road, Pulrose, was sentenced to a 12-month conditional discharge on Tuesday after admitting possession of 0.2 grams of the drug. The street value was said to be between £1.06 and £4. The court heard how, on June 9 at 9.10pm, police attended 30-year-old Corkill’s home after a report of suspicious activity.
Officers spoke to her on the doorstep and she told them she had cannabis in the house. She was taken to police headquarters and during an interview made a full admission to possessing cannabis, saying that it was for personal use.
The court heard that the cannabis amount had been so small there were problems weighing but it was eventually established to weigh 0.2 grams. Corkill is currently subject to a two-year probation order imposed in February 2016.
Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes said: ‘I note the very small quantity. Too small to weigh. ‘It is more serious as it is committed while subject to a probation order, but that would seem to be continuing without any issues.’
