A Busselton couple caught growing 19 cannabis plants in their home have avoided prison time, copping high fines for their cannabis addictions. Devyn Jodan Turner, 32, and Kenadee Rose Mason, 26, appeared in Busselton Magistrates Court last month, each pleading guilty to charges of cultivating a prohibited plant, possessing cannabis, and possessing drug paraphernalia. The charges came after police conducted a search of the pair’s Busselton home, where 19 cannabis plants were discovered in a wardrobe, along with 50.3g of loose cannabis leaf. A glass bong was also found in the kitchen. It was revealed in court while Mason had no history of drug convictions, Turner had a history of using the drug for personal use. The court was told the pair were using the illicit drug to self-medicate and in social aspects, but had abstained since the charges were laid, with Turner going as far as participating in the South West Alcohol and Other Drug Program. Magistrate Joanne Andretich highlighted Mason’s self-reflection since the arrest, and commended her rehabilitation efforts. “You recognise there are other ways to strengthen your focus by engaging in other actions — it’s commendable,” she said. Because of his history of drug use and convictions, Turner was fined $2000, while Mason was fined $1000 because of her young age and lack of criminal record. Mason was also awarded a spent conviction.
