Jail term for man who had £35k worth of cannabis

Jail term for man who had £35k worth of cannabis

A MAN who supplied Class A and B drugs and promoted a “cannabis club” at a shop in Dundee has been jailed for 20 months.

Nikolas Brown, 24, of Laing Place, was given the prison sentence at Dundee Sheriff Court after admitting two charges against him.

He admitted being concerned in the supply of MDMA, a Class A drug, and cannabis, a Class B drug, at his home address, on September 1 last year.

The court heard police found more than £35,000 worth of cannabis at Brown’s home, along with £1,650 worth of MDMA.

Brown, who runs Dundee Cannabis Collective at Strathmartine Road, claimed the business only sold “medicinal oils”.

Fiscal depute Eilidh Robertson told the court Brown’s involvement in supplying drugs was discovered when a fire broke out at his house.

The fiscal said: “At 1.55pm on September 1 last year firefighters attended the address of the accused after reports of a fire within.

“The firefighters saw what appeared to be cannabis on open view in the living room, alongside rows of cash and called police.”

When police arrived they searched Brown’s home and found 2,354g of cannabis, 34g of MDMA, a tick list and four sets of scales.

Cash totalling £9,865 was also discovered from various locations in the living room.

An agent acting on Brown’s behalf said: “He is a young man who is a frequent user of cannabis, it’s part of his everyday life. He’s now paying the price for that and understands the seriousness of his actions.”

The court heard Brown had previous convictions for drug supply.

Sheriff Alastair Brown said: “This was not the typical commercial operation, but it was a commercial operation.

“It appears to have been done in response to his own drug debts.

“The difficulty is he went about it in a structured and commercial way which exposed other people to the risk of drug debts.”

The sheriff warned that anyone involved in the supply of drugs could expect to be treated “very seriously”.

Brown has previously campaigned for legalisation of cannabis and claims his store offers only legal items and medicinal advice.
