In a case involving a defendant who had pleaded guilty to possessing a Class C drug, producing a Class C drug, and possessing a Class C drug with intent to supply, while the sentence was not wrong in principle, in all of the circumstances of the instant case, it was not necessary for the defendant to serve two years' imprisonment. The sentence of two years' imprisonment on counts one and three would be quashed and substituted by a sentence of 18 months' imprisonment, to run concurrently.
