Barry Doudie (38), 107 Kingseat Avenue, Grangemouth, was caught growing cannabis plants in his home.
At Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday he was fined £225 after admitting cultivating the Class B drug.
Police discovered the illegal crop, worth an estimated £500, after a raid on January 11. Doudie will pay the fine at £20 a fortnight from his benefits.
The plants have been confiscated.
