A MAN who found six small cannabis seedlings during a 'walk in the country' has been given a 12-month conditional discharge.

Ryan Andrew Lovett, 23, of Albion Terrace, Barnsley, took the seedlings home to see if he could smoke them, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Jack Danaher, defending, said the seedlings had been thrown away because they were no good.

Julie Grant, prosecuting, said the seedlings were of 'minimal value'.

Lovett, who admitted possession of cannabis, was ordered to pay £85 in costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
