Teen gave up drugs after police spoke to him

A TEENAGED passenger involved in a "car session" of drug smoking was sentenced in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Noble Kane Adams, 18, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing dangerous drugs and one count of possessing utensils or pipes that had been used, after an incident on January 19.

Police spoke to Adams on January 22, where he declined a formal interview, despite admiting he'd been in the car with friends that had driven to Red Rover Rd to participate in a "car session" for smoking drugs.

Defence solicitor Bill McMillan SC, told the court his client had been a passenger in the incident and had since given up using drugs.

Magistrate Russell Warfield opted not to record a conviction against the young man, but fined him $500 in total for the offences.
