A man was busted with marijuana seeds and a homemade bong when police knocked on his door in relation to a domestic violence incident.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty on April 14 in Rockhampton Magistrates Court to one count each of breaching a domestic violence order, possessing a dangerous drug and possessing a drug utensil.
