Man grew and shared drug crop

A WARWICK man who shared some of the fruits of his marijuana plants with a friend has walked from court with a fine.

Edward Ulrich pleaded guilty this week to producing, supplying and possessing dangerous drugs and possessing drug utensils.

The Warwick Magistrates Court heard police uncovered seven marijuana plants of up to 190cm in height, 272 grams of dried marijuana and 4 grams of seeds at Ulrich's residence on February 28.

A grinder, pipes and scales used in connection with drug activity were also uncovered at the property.

Ulrich told police the drug was for his personal use, but admitted to supplying one friend with marijuana.

However, he denied selling the drug, saying no money was exchanged and he gave it to the friend for free.

He said he had planted the seeds, but had not watered them or maintained them and admitted using the scales and grinder to cut and weigh the material.

The court heard the 48-year-old had no prior criminal history.

Ulrich was fined $1000 and no conviction was recorded against him.
