The Judge, Recorder Fuller, took into consideration evidence in a pre-sentencing report which showed that Kerslake had debts of £10,000.
Recorder Fuller said: "The aggravating features of this case are your previous conviction and that the set up you had was well organised and sophisticated. With the quantity found and his financial state you were growing for your own consumption but with the intent to supply to other people."
