A meth trafficker said she should be released from jail because she only scammed victims with rock salt she told them was ice.
Candice Bo Allen, from Townsville, Queensland, said she kept the actual drugs and money she earned to fuel her addiction and would sell fake ice to customers.
She argues that she should have been found guilty of defrauding customers, instead of drug trafficking.

Allen pleaded guilty to drug trafficking between October 2016 and April 2017, the Sunshine Coast Daily reported.
She was sentenced to four and a half years in jail.
Allen represented herself during a court hearing in 2018 and told the judge she never sold real ice.
Allen has appealed her drug trafficking conviction and argues she should have pleaded guilty to defrauding customers instead
She appealed her conviction at the Queensland Court of Appeal.
Allen claims she was pressured to plead guilty to the drug trafficking charge and felt she was unable to challenge her guilty plea.
Her case was postponed so she can apply for legal aid and she will face court again at a later date.
