A 20-YEAR-old woman was caught twice in just over a week drug driving in Worcester, a court heard.

Marie Baker broke down in tears as deputy district judge Simon Morgan told her that she had risked not only her life but members of the public's lives in driving with cannabis in her system twice in just eight days.

Worcester Magistrates Court heard she was first stopped in the city on April 10 and she had 5.6ug/l of cannabis in her blood, above the legal limit of 2ug/l.

Then, on April 18, the Lower Moor, Pershore resident was stopped again this time with 5.3ug/l of cannabis in her blood.

Mark Sheward, defending Baker, said she know knew about being over the limit, and understood the ramifications of smoking cannabis and then driving.

Mr Sheward said she had been in a bad place, living with her boyfriend who was more sophisticated with drug use and had led her into taking cannabis.

"She will now have to give that relationship some thought on whether it should continue," he said.

"Perhaps, she wont mind my saying this, there was some naivety in how she has behavioured."

The judge said: "I can't just let her go, I cannot ignore the fact she wholly ignored the first arrest.

"These are serious offences.

"If she'd had had an ounce of sense she would have said to herself 'don't do it again' before the second occasion."

Sentencing her, Mr Morgan said: "I am satisfied the combination of offences warrant a community order."

Baker was given the order for a 12 week curfew, forcing her to be at her home between 8pm and 7am each night.

Baker was disqualified from driving for two years and ordered to pay costs of £135 and a victim surcharge of £85 - a total of £220 which will be deducted from her benefits.

Mr Morgan added: "If you drive while disqualified you will go to prison."
