Medicinal herbs

A GULBERWICK man who grew cannabis at his home for medical reasons was fined £400 and told to carry out 50 hours of unpaid work.

Neil Cadden, of 8 North Heathery Park, had previously admitted producing the Class B drug on 18 October 2012.

Presenting a positive social enquiry report, defence solicitor Tommy Allan said that the 37 year old was a hard working man who had “medical reasons for the use of cannabis”.

Sheriff Philip Mann said he understood the motivation behind Cadden’s offending, but added: “The law is the law and we are stuck with it. It is my job to hand it out even-handedly.”
