A MAN was so heavily addicted to cannabis that he sprinkled it on his breakfast cereal, a court heard.
But Larry Appoh, 27, has managed to put his entrenched addiction behind him, following his arrest.
Appoh, of Clare Crescent, Baldock pleaded guilty to possessing cannabis with intent to supply.
The prosecution at Luton Crown Court accepted that he was not supplying commercially, but buying in bulk and sharing it with friends.

Maurice Aston, prosecuting, said that, acting on information, police searched Appoh's bedroom on September 29 last year. At first they only found a small amount of cannabis but a further search revealed 28 bags each containing 3.5 grammes of the Class C drug.
He was arrested and admitted he had bought in bulk for his own heavy use and to share with friends.
Paul Millen, defending, said: "He was dependent on cannabis to such an extent that he was sprinkling the drug on his breakfast cereal.
"His addiction began in 2000 following the death of his father.
"But he has changed his life style and realised that drugs ruin lives. In six months he has made remarkable progress by reducing from such a high usage to using nothing at all.
