Man Given Suspended Jail Term

Wednesday September 4 2013

A MAN has been given a suspended jail sentence after being caught growing cannabis worth an estimated £8,100.

David Wicks, 24, was growing the drugs in his bedroom, Felicity Hemlin, prosecuting, told Barnsley Magistrates' Court.

She said the cannabis was for the father-of-two's personal use.

Philip Stables, defending, said Wicks, of Houghton Road, Thurnscoe, had stopped smoking cannabis since his arrest.

Wicks, who admitted cannabis production, was ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work, to pay £85 in costs and an £80 victim surcharge.

The only thing criminal here is the stupid draconian law. What harm has he done? This stuff is less harmful than beer. But of course, beer is easier to tax.
