Patricia Lynette Wright, 63, was sentenced to six months' supervision and four months' community detention when she appeared in court yesterday.
Wright was charged with selling cannabis plant material to a person over the age of 18.
The charge came after police searched her home on September 3, and found 17 cannabis tinnies in her bag as well as $1750 cash.
Wright said the cannabis had been home grown and that the cash was rent money.
She said the cannabis was for her own medicinal use, although a small amount had been sold to others. Judge Russell said anybody who sold drugs caused a considerable concern.
Thomas Paul King, 62, was disqualified from driving class two to five motor vehicles when he appeared in court facing four logbook-related charges.
King was charged with making a false logbook statement, driver exceeding 13 hours work time, not having 10 hours' continuous rest and exceeding 5 hours continuous driving.
He was disqualified from driving for one month, fined $250 and ordered to pay $130 in court costs.
Leah Janine Davidson was disqualified from driving when she appeared in court facing a charge of driving while suspended. She was disqualified for excess demerit points on October 2 for three months.
She was pulled over on State Highway 1 in Ward on October 5, where she admitted she had been suspended from driving.
Her lawyer Bryony Millar said she had been at Seafest in Kaikoura and had just wanted to get home, but had no-one to take her.
Judge Russell said he had heard her reason but it was not a reasonable excuse to be driving. "Don't you drive again until you have a valid licence in hand," he said.
