A man who used cannabis regularly was caught growing his own when police raided his address.

Daniel Curley, 23, of Bolton Street, South Shore, pleaded guilty to cannabis production and possession.

He was sentenced to do 60 hours unpaid work for the community, put on 12 months supervision and ordered to pay £60 victims’ surcharge by Blackpool magistrates.

Harold Smith, prosecuting, said police went to Curley’s address and found a cannabis production set-up there with 13 cannabis plants growing on September 19 at 4.45pm.

Curley had a previous conviction for cannabis possession in 2009.

Gary McAnulty, defending, said Curley had used cannabis regularly and because it was expensive to buy he decided to grow his own.
