The man studied mathematics at Glasgow University
Police discovered 3 plants at the home of Andrew Kerr.
Sheriff Colin Pettigrew spared him jail and said “A fine was never going to be imposed in relation to this.
“Your previous convictions, although drug related, are very old.
“There was a significant level of planning involved here – you know it’s illegal and you carry on regardless.
“The one factor keeping you out of jail today is the number of plants, which was relatively modest.
“I am in no way condoning the growing of cannabis.”
He placed Kerr on a Community Payback Order, telling him to complete 200 hours’ unpaid work within nine months.
