A 47-year-old man who grew cannabis to help with his pain relief has been warned he could be jailed when he is sentenced next month.
Before Ipswich Crown court for a plea hearing by a remote link was Johnny Carrick, of Garboldisham Ling, North Lopham, Diss.
He pleaded guilty to producing cannabis in January, June and August last year.
He also admitted having a lock knife in St John’s Way, Thetford, on August 25 and possessing cannabis on the same date.
Adam Norris, for Carrick, told the court that his client was in a lot of pain and grew cannabis for pain relief.
He said Carrick had an ulcerated leg and was currently waiting for a skin graft which had been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Judge Rupert Overbury agreed to adjourn sentence to allow the probation service to prepare a report on Carrick.
