UK: Couple: Pot-laced chocolate not drug trade
Thursday 07 Dec 2006
A British husband and wife offering cannabis-laced chocolate bars to
multiple sclerosis sufferers deny they conspired to sell marijuana.
Mark Gibson and his wife Lezley, both 42, told police they made the
Canna-Biz bars -- containing around 3.5 grams of the substance -- in
their kitchen and mailed them out on request, The Daily Mail reports.
Lezley Gibson told the Carlisle Crown Court she and her husband had sent
bars to more than 2,000 people through their small non-profit, and were
regularly in touch with 100 MS sufferers each week.
We don't have any money; we just want to help people, said Lezley
Gibson, who has MS.
Prosecutors told the court investigators seized $59,000 in receipts from
the Gibsons' home.
Marijuana is reported to have beneficial effects in treating pain and
muscle spasms in patients with multiple sclerosis, the newspaper said.
Many people who suffer from MS report marijuana provides symptom relief
when all other medications fail.
