Crane was charged with one count each of producing dangerous drugs, possessing dangerous drugs and possessing utensils used in connection with smoking a dangerous drug but told Magistrate Cameron Press he did not "have a problem, it's all good".  

"I'm not sure about that, I have some suspicion," Mr Press said.   

Police prosecutor Sean Franklin told the court police found a 75cm cannabis plant in the back of the dwelling, 2.2g of cannabis in the kitchen and multiple pipes and a grinder throughout the kitchen and bedroom.   

He said Crane told police he planted the seedling a month prior and had watered it.  

Whalan pleaded guilty to one count each of possessing dangerous drugs and possessing utensils used in connection with smoking a dangerous drug.   

Crane was fined $1500 with no convictions recorded and Whalan was sentenced to drug diversion with $600 recognisance with no convictions recorded.
