Ireland: Suspended sentence for Cork man who shared cannabis with friends

A 34-year-old Youghal man cultivated cannabis for medicinal purposes because of shoulder pain and he shared the drug with friends.

At Cork Circuit Criminal Court, Joe Norris, 34, has been given a one-year suspended sentence.

Sergeant Bernard Kelleher said there was a search under warrant at the defendant’s home on December 8, 2020.

Sergeant Kelleher said the search uncovered €4,400 worth of cannabis and that Joe Norris initially admitted possession of the drug but said it was for his own use.

He later pleaded guilty to a charge of having drugs for sale or supply to others.

Defence barrister, Suzanne Lewis, said he did not come to the attention of gardaí before this incident or after it.

“He always maintained it was for his own use. However, he admitted sale or supply because he supplied it … to his friends and he made no financial gain for himself,” Ms Lewis said.
