A KENDAL student who helped supply cannabis to one of his friends has landed before a judge at Carlisle Crown Court on a drug dealing charge.
Mark David Langhorne, 20, was arrested after a drugs raid on his flat in Well Ings on May 4 last year.
He was found with a small package of cannabis, while “incriminating” text messages were found on his mobile phone, prosecutor David Dunk told the court.
These showed he had been regularly contacted by a man known as “Josh W” about the supply of cannabis, he said.
Langhorne pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of cannabis.
But he did so, defence advocate Chris Evans said, only on the basis that, being a regular drug user, he knew where to get cannabis, while his friend “Josh W” did not.
So, Mr Evans said, for a few days Langhorne acted as a go-between between the drug dealers and his friend.
He made no financial profit from it, he said, but received small amounts of cannabis from the dealers for his trouble.
Mr Evans said Langhorne had now “distanced himself” from his drug-using friends after realising that his use of cannabis was “just a complete waste of time”.
The judge, Recorder Kevin Talbot, told Langhorne that unless he stopped committing such offences he would end up in prison.
“That would be nothing short of a disaster for you and your family,” he said.
Langhorne was put under probation supervision for a year and made to do 200 hours unpaid community work.
