A WOMAN from Ilfracombe has admitted allowing a friend to grow cannabis at her home.
Jill Short pleaded guilty to permitting the cultivation of the drug and Christopher Mackintosh has admitted growing about four plants at her home in March.
Mackintosh, 34, and Short, 42, who live at different addresses in High Street, Ilfracombe, appeared together at Exeter Crown Court.
Short admitted permitting premises at 60A High Street, Ilfracombe to be used for producing cannabis.
Mackintosh admitted production of cannabis and personal possession of the drug.
A charge that they both possessed of cannabis with intent to supply on March 23, 2016 was dropped. Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, adjourned sentence and ordered pre-sentence reports on both defendants.
He released both on bail. Mr James Taghdissian, for Short, said she had entered her plea on a basis which is acceptable to the prosecution.
Richard Crabb, for Mackintosh, said the four or five plants were intended to produce drugs for his own use.
He said he hoped to persuade the sentencing judge to impose a community order. He said Mackintosh has no drug related convictions.
