Drug dealer who once smoked £100-a-day of cannabis after getting hooked at the age of 14 is now in jail

Drug dealer who once smoked £100-a-day of cannabis after getting hooked at the age of 14 is now in jail

 

Cannabis dealer Jordan Russell has been jailed for pedalling the drug two years after a court gave him a chance to kick his habit.

 

The 26-year-old was arrested after police executed a drugs warrant at an address in Shelton.

 

He was in possession of two bags of cannabis and more cannabis was found under the television along with dealer bags, scales and a phone.

 

The defendant told police he was earning £30 a day to supply the class B drug on behalf of someone else.

 

Now Russell, who was handed a community order for the same offence in 2017, has been jailed for eight months at Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court.

 

Prosecutor Richard McConaghy said police executed a warrant at an address in Sun Street, Shelton, at 1.25pm on February 13 last year.

 

Mr McConaghy said: “Three people were inside. One was the defendant. He was searched and he had two bags of cannabis and £30 on his person.

“Underneath the television was a bag containing five bags of cannabis. Four were dealer bags and one was a larger amount. There was also some clear empty snap bags and a mobile telephone and scales were also seized.”

 

In total the cannabis was valued at £200.

 

In his police interview the defendant admitted the drugs were his. He said he was dealing on behalf of another and earned about £30 a day.

 

Russell, of Windermere Street, Hanley, pleaded guilty to possession of a class B drug with intent to supply.

 

The court heard the defendant was handed a community order in 2017 after he pleaded guilty to a similar charge.

 

Hamish Noble, mitigating, said the defendant has been using cannabis since he was aged 14 and at one stage he was using £100 worth of the drug a day.

 

Mr Noble said: “He tells me his cannabis use is less than it was.

“He was unable to resist the encouragement of others to deal cannabis on their behalf.”

 

Judge David Fletcher said: “For the second time in a little more than two years you find yourself in the crown court accepting your responsibility for possession of cannabis with intent to supply.

“I spelled out to you what would be the consequences of your continued cannabis use, let alone if you continued to supply the drugs. You were told. You took not notice.

“Immediate custody must follow. I am afraid people who do not take the opportunity they are offered have to bear the consequences that they were warned about. And you were warned time and time again.”

Reading this article one has got to wonder who's the most "hooked".  IMO cannabis is just an accessorial entertaining decoy for whole predatory economies well suited for blood suckers feeding on people, exploiting their victim's "sins" as a justification to force them quitting the habit.  Imagine a legally-vulnerable minor who's father actually happens to be just like this judge when over-reacting to such a low-profile "offence"...  Not to mention the story fails to reveal what triggered that particular warrant anyway!  Was it failure to pay artificially-inflated taxes over some humble commerce or mis-guided 3rd-party (invasive) moral values not so noble after all?

 

Contemplate yet another sample of obscure self-serving "elites" who's sense of proportionality, accountability and maturity clearly rate as pathetic!

26 years old. What a waste. How much will this case cost? For a few hundred quid worth of pot. I just read about a lady that got off with 40k worth of plants. It is beyond silly now.
