A teenager fined after pleading guilty to possession of a Class B drug says he is cutting down and hopes to become a personal trainer.
Terron Powell, 19, was approached by police in his car in Old Kent Road on September 9 last year.
When he was getting out of the car, Powell, of Moorside Road, Bromley, fiddled with his sock, causing a small bag of cannabis to fall into the foot well.
Upon searching the car police found two more bags of cannabis, including 24.2 grams hidden beneath the leather cover of the car’s gear stick.
His defending solicitor told said: “He had been using cannabis very heavily, smoking on a daily basis sometimes four or five bags.”
Since the incident he claimed Powell had dramatically cut down on his habit and was also studying to become a personal trainer.
Powell was given a conditional discharge, along with a fine of £100.
