Cannabis found

Whitsunday Times - - COURT & LAW -

A MAN caught with 85.6 grams of cannabis in his home has been fined $700.

Paul Luke Richard­son, 57, pleaded guilty in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day to pos­sess­ing dan­ger­ous drugs and pos­sess­ing prop­erty sus­pected of hav­ing been used in con­nec­tion with the com­mis­sion of a drug of­fence. Pros­e­cu­tor Robert Beamish told the court po­lice found the cannabis in a brown paper bag in the lounge room of Richard­son’s Can­non­vale home when they searched it on July 4.

A bong made out of a plas­tic bot­tle, scis­sors used to chop the cannabis up, a set of scales he said was to weigh his cannabis “so he doesn’t get ripped off” and clipseal bags he said he sep­a­rated his cannabis into “to make it last”, were also found, Mr Beamish said.
