Man fined for growing marijuana at home
A MAN has received a fine after he was found growing marijuana at his home.
In Bundaberg Magistrates Court on Monday, Robert Noel Hughes pleaded guilty to three charges including producing a dangerous drug.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Dean Burgess told the court a search warrant was executed at Hughes' home on March 11.
During the search police found 10 marijuana plants, a bong and a grinder.
Sgt Burgess said Hughes told police he was growing the marijuana for medical purposes.
Hughes, who represented himself, told the court he was growing the marijuana to "have a go" at making cannabis oil.
Magistrate Andrew Moloney took into account Hughes' plea of guilty and that it came at the earliest opportunity.
Hughes received one fine of $500 for all three offences.
No convictions were recorded.
