Emmerson was found in possession of 22.4 grams of skunk, which she said was for personal use.
Nicholson told police in an interview part of the cash was for a wedding fund for the two of them and family and friends had given them some money.
She also said she used cannabis because she believed it helped alleviate the symptoms of her epilepsy.
Nicholson was given a nine-month sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to do 150 hours' unpaid work.
Emmerson was also handed a community order and ordered to do 60 hours' unpaid work.
