Man admits having cannabis for supply


A Warwick man admitted handling more than $290,000 of drugs with intent to supply.

Luri Scott, 24, pleaded guilty at Supreme Court on Tuesday to handling cannabis, cannabis resin and tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient in cannabis, at his home.

He also admitted having drug equipment, specifically a digital scale.

The offences were said to have taken place on December 15, 2017.

Acting Puisne Judge Craig Attridge ordered a social inquiry report and a drug assessment on Scott and released him on bail until August.

But Mr Attridge warned Scott: “You should not take from that any indication that you will not be sentenced on this matter to a custodial sentence.”
