Anthony Marshall, 27, of Ramdhanie Trace, Indian Walk, pleaded guilty on Thursday before Princes Town magistrate Indira Misir-Gosine.
The court heard that Southern Division Task Force police intercepted a car during a roadblock at Bois Jean Jean, Moruga, on Wednesday.
Marshall was in the back seat with the bag on his back. Police searched it and found the marijuana.
