David Frederick Morgan Bowden, 37, who also has one kidney, smoked up to 30 joints a day, a court was told. Representing himself, Bowden, of Heol Degwm, North Cornelly, told Bridgend Magistrates' Court: 'Four years ago I had an accident at work where my hands were crushed and I've suffered pain since then. 'I also broke my legs in April and I still suffer pain now. I grow the cannabis for my own use.' Helen Edwards, prosecuting, said police executed a search warrant at Bowden's home on January 22 and found cannabis growing in his shed.
Police also found a plastic bag in the washing machine containing cut green stems. She said: 'The shed was divided into parts with a light switched on over 14 squares with seeds individually placed into each one.'
Ms Edwards said Bowden bought the seeds from Holland and grew 10 plants every three months, three of which usually survived. Magistrates fined Bowden pounds 150 with pounds 35 costs after he admitted cultivating cannabis and being in possession of the Class C drug.
