News and Star, Carlisle

A 36-YEAR-old man in a wheelchair who suffers from multiple sclerosis
told a jury at Carlisle Crown Court today that cannabis chocolate sent
to him by a Cumbrian couple had been helpful.
Wayne Miller was giving evidence in the trial of 42-year-old Lesley
Gibson, her husband Mark, also 42, and an old school friend of his,
Marcus Davies, 38, from Cambridgeshire.
All three have pleaded not guilty to two counts of conspiring to supply
cannabis in 2004 and 2005.
Mr Miller said he was diagnosed with MS 45 years ago and suffered
particular problems with walking. He first learned about cannabis
chocolate through the MS Society's Pathways magazine.
Asked about his contact with the Gibsons, he said he had written to the
couple, who live at Front Street, Alston, and asked them to send him som
of the cannabis chocolate.
"They wrote back and said they needed a doctor's note to prove that I
had MS," said Mr Miller. Asked if the chocolate had given him any
benefit, he replied: "It was very helpful."
The trial continues.
