Boy, 16, admits to growing cannabis
FIVE small cannabis plants were found in a windowbox on the windowsill of a 16-year-old Bodmin teenager's bedroom, a court has been told.
The boy appeared before Bodmin Youth Court on Monday when he pleaded guilty to a charge of producing the Class B drug.
Gail Hawkley, for the prosecution, said that police officers had gone to the boy's address on a separate matter, which did not involve him, on the morning of October 1.
The plants were found during a search and the boy fully admitted growing them for his own use.

The boy told the court he now knew it had been a "very stupid idea".
He had since got a job and was no longer keeping company with his former associates.
The magistrates fined him £70 with £85 costs and a £15 surcharge which the teenager's father agreed to pay in full.
