A YOUNG man was caught in possession of dangerous drugs after burnt cannabis could be smelt outside the home.

About 8pm on July 5, police went to an address on Campbell St, Rockhampton, after receiving reports of burnt cannabis wafting from the house.

He was fined $750 and made to forfeit the utensils and drug.
