The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports…..A South Australian man has been given a suspended sentence over his “Kronfectionary” business which sold more than $12,000 worth of cannabis-infused food products including fairy floss, cookies, Nutella and chocolate from his home.

The District Court heard Jamie Stephen Woodward used cannabis oil as a key ingredient in his homemade confectionery, and was advertising and marketing the products for sale on social media.

Judge Wayne Chivell described the business as “sophisticated”.

He handed Woodward a fully suspended jail sentence for two years and eight months with a non-parole period of 16 months.

The jail term was suspended on the condition he be of good behaviour for three years.

Woodward, 32, admitted to manufacturing a controlled drug for sale, possessing prescribed equipment and trafficking a controlled drug.

Judge Chivell said Woodward extracted cannabis oil from plant material and infused it into almost 11 kilograms of food products.

He said police raided Woodward’s home in February 2018 and found “the residence smelling of cannabis, and there was a large banner inside saying ‘Kronfectionary’”.

“The banner contained images of cartoon characters and they were also displayed on your Facebook page, which you used to sell some of the products,” he said.
