A 28-year-old father who was caught with two rocks of cocaine was fined.
Carlos Carew-James was arrested with the Class A drugs in Peckham on January 9.
After admitting a charge of possession of the drugs he told the court he had been given them by his friends and felt “under pressure” to accept them.
They were said to have been worth around £20. Magistrates were told that he has previous convictions for possession of Class A and B drugs. Carew-James, whose address was not given, was fined £130.
