The 35-year-old got off with just probation and a $75 fine after he admitted he'd grown the stuff but convinced the court its potency had been sapped because he'd stored it in his attic, reports The Local.
He did have enough cannabis plants in his possession to warrant time behind bars, according to the report. But he argued they contained a low level of THC -- the active ingredient in pot.
The court was convinced and never bothered to test the plants.
