Man gave cannabis to part­ner

Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A MAN has ad­mit­ted sup­ply­ing his part­ner with drugs to ease her health prob­lems.

James Bain, 43, ad­mit­ted roast­ing cannabis stalks and stems be­fore grind­ing them up and putting them into food he made for him and his girl­friend.

Aberdeen Sher­iff Court heard Bain, whose ad­dress was given in court pa­pers as 1 Tod­law Walk, Dyce, got the drugs from a friend who grows his own cannabis.

The court heard the weight of cannabis found in Bain’s house would have been val­ued at £12,525 but be­cause it was stalks and stems it was de­scribed as val­ue­less to deal­ers.

De­fence lawyer Graham Mor­ri­son said the drugs were used to al­le­vi­ate Bain’s part­ner’s health is­sues.

He said she suf­fered from tremors and spasms and that cannabis al­le­vi­ated the symp­toms. Sen­tence on Bain was de­ferred for 12 months for good be­hav­iour.
