The aquarium high life?

Store owner Shane Kevin Jurgense started a cannabis grow-op in his LFS for personal use and began to sell small quantities to support his habit.  During the raid, law enforcement found several packages of marijuana, a small amount of speed, and $3500 AUD cash.  Jurgense is sentenced to 18 months in prison but should be released on parole after 6 months.
