UK: Isle of Wight man produces cannabis Cancard in court

CANNANNEW REPORT

A NEWPORT man accused of possessing cannabis is having his case reviewed after he produced a type of card which proves medical dispensation to use the class B drug — the first such case heard on the Isle of Wight. David Toker, of Hogan Close, Newport, did not enter a plea to the alleged September 9 offence when he appeared at the Isle of Wight Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, December 21. Ann Smout, prosecuting, said Mr Toker, 40, produced a Cancard — a validated indication to the police, or any third party, that someone is consuming cannabis for medical reasons. Mrs Smout, who said she had never seen such a card in any court case before, requested an adjournment so a senior Crown Prosecution Service lawyer could ensure it can be validated. Mr Toker was bailed to reappear at the same venue on January 11. https://www.countypress.co.uk/news/19811263.isle-wight-man-produces-cannabis-cancard-court/
