A former police PCSO suffering from multiple sclerosis has vowed to continue smoking cannabis even if it means going to jail.

Susan Lunn, 43, was been handed a six-month conditional discharge for possessing the illegal drug.

She said she uses cannabis every day as medical relief from her condition, which sees her battle muscle spasms, headaches, bladder problems and tremors on a daily basis.

Now Ms Lunn has been told she will face a ‘much worse punishment’ if she is caught possessing the Class B drug in the next six months.

But the former Humberside Police special constable has said she will carry on smoking cannabis regardless of the law.

The mother-of-one, who was diagnosed with MS 17 years ago, said: ‘I’m not going to stop doing it.

‘If I gave up cannabis, the results would be absolutely devastating. I smoke it every day and it has helped me to live a relatively normal life.

‘It calms me down, relaxes my muscles, stops my shakes and helps keep my mild epilepsy under control.’
