Gavin Cowe, mitigating on behalf of all three defendants, said Clayton had been growing the cannabis for his own use, for when traditional painkillers were not enough to numb the pain his back as a result of two car accidents.
He said Feavyer was only a recreational user of drugs who had kept out of trouble since 2004, while Vincent had had a heroin addiction for 16 years.
