A drug addict began supplying cannabis so he could fund his own “terrible” heroin habit.
Grant Clark (29) was dealing the class B drug at his home so he could afford to buy the class A drug heroin – which he was reportedly taking at a rate of ten bags per day.
Appearing at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, Clark previously pled guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis between August 2 and September 2.
Graham Mclachlan, procurator fiscal depute, said: “A warrant was executed and police attended. During the course of the search drug-related paraphernalia and herbal cannabis was discovered and £120 in cash recovered.”
Defence solicitor Neil Hay said: “He has a heroin habit which has him on ten bags a day. The money he obtained from cannabis sales went to fund his heroin addiction. There was no profit for him.
“He has a terrible addiction and used the money to buy himself class A drugs.”
The court heard Clark had been going to drug addiction support organisation Signpost to try and deal with his problem.
Sheriff John Mundy placed Clark, 225 Carmuirs Avenue, Camelon, on a supervised community payback order for 18 months.
