According to Stuff.co.nz, AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was convicted of cannabis possession in a Tauranga, New Zealand court Wednesday morning (December 1).
Police discovered the drugs when they executed a search warrant on Rudd's launch at the Tauranga Bridge Marina on October 7.
Inside they found 25 grams of cannabis and a further two grams of cannabis at another location on the boat.
Rudd's lawyer, Craig Tuck, asked community magistrate Robyn Paterson to discharge him without conviction because the "low-level" offense could hinder his chances of travelling internationally.
"Over the last nine months, at least 20 countries have been entered," Tuck said.
"He travels extensively around the globe, across the planet, and on the basis of such criminality, which is low level offending, he is being targeted."
