A man was fined after he drove under the influence of cannabis.

Barry Allan Campbell, 50, appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court earlier this week after he pleaded guilty to possession of the drug and driving while it was in his bloodstream.

His car was stopped by police around 11.40pm on January 21, 2023, on Great Western Road.

As officers approached, they noticed a strong smell of cannabis.

Campbell, of Govan, was detained for a search.

At this point, he gave the police two grams of cannabis he had on him. A search of the car came up negative.

A saliva test was carried out and the result was positive.

Campbell was taken to Clydebank police station. There, he provided a sample of his blood, which was sent for forensic analysis. It tested positive for cannabis.

He was cautioned and charged, but Campbell made no reply.

His blood was found to contain 6.3 microgrammes of the substance.

At the hearing, representing himself, he said: "I am in full-time employment. I stay with my wife and two kids. They are adults. I suffer from anxiety.

"I lost my parents and I was made redundant and had surgery."

Sheriff Michael Hanlon said to him: "Maybe you have a bit of a stressful time but there is help out there."

Campbell was fined £300 - plus a £20 victim surcharge - and disqualified from driving for 12 months.
