'She used cannabis to self-medicate': Woman who drove on drugs twice in weeks is banned and fined

A woman has been banned from driving for 16 months and handed a court bill of more than £500 after being caught drug driving twice within weeks.


Magistrates in Telford were told that Amy Nicole Moretti had been going through personal problems and was using cannabis to "self-medicate".

Prosecutor Ros Buttler said officers had suspected 29-year-old Moretti of driving a black Volkswagen Golf at the Telford M54 Junction 4 services while on drugs.

She said that on August 20, 2023 officers "could smell cannabis and her pupils were dilated".
