A meth-smoking grandmother will be on curfew for four months as a result of her offending.
Karen Haupapa previously pleaded guilty to cultivating cannabis, possessing methamphetamine and having three glass pipes which are used to smoke the class A drug.
During Wednesday’s hearing, Judge Chris Sygrove said police executed a search warrant at Haupapa’s New Plymouth address on February 10.
Officers found two “healthy” one metre high cannabis plants, along with 41 cuttings, growing in pots in a shed on her property.
Inside the house, a small leather bag containing 0.26 grams of methamphetamine and a glass pipe were seized. Two more pipes were found in a caravan near the house.
Sygrove said Haupapa admitted the drugs were for her personal use and that she had paid $150 for the meth.
