One 20 year old brought a weed growing kit from a garage sale and then looked to YouTube to find out what to do with it.
While he got an A+ for effort, he was not much of a horticulturist and he set up a watering, ventilation and lighting kit in his flat where he looked after his 40 plants.
However, he was caught out when his landlord went to go fix a water leak and saw his pride and joy, so the landlord called the cops.
The man tried to get out of his jail sentence by claiming it was for personal use, but as it turned out his excuses were not needed as he didn't even grow a single bud in the whole year that he had them.
His lawyer also added that he had ‘neither the wit, expertise or dedication to maintain the growth. It was an inept attempt to cultivate for his own use.’
The judge canned the jail time that is meant for those caught with possession, and watered it down to hundreds of hours of community work.
The judge stated 'This was an incompetent grow from start to finish'. That's got to be a bit embarrassing for the fella...
