A man caught with a kit for making the banned synthetic substance Spice has been jailed for a year.
Paul Benson, 48, of Barncroft Avenue, Seaton, Workington, was pulled over by police for driving erratically in west Cumbria last August, and officers found three mobile phones, a set of digital weighing scales, £850 cash and 325 diazepam tablets.
Also located was a herbal material weighing almost half a kilo, which Carlisle Crown Court heard could be "impregnated" with the contents of two bottles of liquid in the car and sold for up to £4,900.
His lawyer Paul Tweddle conceded that Benson had been transporting a "drug-making kit, to make spice".
Benson admitted possessing drugs and substances with intent to supply, criminal property and a fake blue parking badge.
