A defendant convicted of importing drugs had his appeal dismissed where a trial judge had exercised his discretion perfectly properly in admitting evidence of his drug use and also of paraphernalia found at his home. This was because it was relevant to an issue in the case (namely whether he was at an airport innocently) and its prejudicial effect did not outweigh its probative value.
