No conviction for marijuana growing creative type

Recent Cases

Our client was an artist charged under the Drugs (Misuse and Trafficking) Act after he had been discovered cultivating a marijuana plant at his home amongst other illegal plants. We advised him to plead guilty and made submissions to the court that the decision to cultivate the plant was one borne of novelty rather than for any commercial or chronic personal use. The court decided to proceed by way of a section 10 and our client was not convicted.
