A young man before Naas District Court was asked the reasons for 'smoking dope.'
The accused told the court that he has 'stopped.'
Defence Solicitor David Powderly argued that the charge for being in possession of €25 worth of cannabis dates back to 2016.
Mr Powderly said: "He is now working in fitness. He has grown up."
Defence told the court how the accused could pay €500.
Evidence was given that the accused had one previous conviction for drunken driving.
Judge Desmond Zaidan ordered that if the accused pays €500 by March 8, next, then the Probation Act Section 1(1) will be imposed.
