Isis man on drug charges

Isis Town and Country - - News -

A 50-YEAR-OLD Isis Cen­tral man faced the Childers Mag­is­trates Court on Fri­day and was con­victed and fined $2500 for pro­duc­ing and pos­sess­ing dan­ger­ous drugs.

Po­lice pros­e­cu­tor Se­nior Con­sta­ble Hay­ley Glover told the court when po­lice at­tended Thomas Les­lie Smith’s home on Fe­bru­ary 3, they found six cannabis plants in pots and one gram of dried mar­i­juana, as well as a wa­ter pipe used for smok­ing the drug.

Smith told po­lice he had grown the plants from seeds and had wa­tered them daily for per­sonal use.

His de­fence ar­gued Smith used mar­i­juana as pain re­lief af­ter a workplace in­jury left him with a bro­ken back 30 years ago.

Smith was fined a fur­ther $350 for pos­sess­ing a mar­i­juana pipe.

Mag­is­trate John Smith warned Smith if he was caught for drug-re­lated of­fences again, prison was “highly likely”.
