At Carlisle Crown Court, David Williams, 45, and Andrew Jones, 27, both from Chirk in North Wales, admitted possessing the drug with intent to supply.

People in Barrow are being warned that new spending cuts at the town hall are likely to mean increased charges, fewer services, and the outsourcing of the town's Forum entertainments venue, the leisure centre and the kennels.
Some playgrounds and public toilets could also be closed, as the borough council responds to a further £2.3m cut in its grant from central government, on top of an earlier cut of £5m since 2010.
Phil Huck, the executive director of the council, says there is very little scope for efficiency savings because of the previous cut backs.
He said: "We've been through a cost code by cost code assessment of every single thing the council does and asked ourselves could we do it differently, could we do it better, could we produce more income, could we do it more cheaply and so on."
The MP for Penrith and the Border Rory Stewart says he's honoured and excited to take up his new job at the Department for International Development.

Labour activists were leafleting Barrow shipyard workers as they arrived to clock on this morning.
The leaflets, headed "Shipyard safe", said Labour MPs had helped secure the support of the House of Commons for the Successor programme, as the renewal of the UK nuclear deterrent is known.
The last time the Labour party was led by a politician committed to nuclear disarmament, Michael Foot, in the 1980s, the constituency returned the Conservative MP Cecil Franks at two elections.

Prolonged spells of sunshine and clear blue skies will continue for much of the day.
The county's Labour MPs were harshly critical of the party's leader, Jeremy Corbyn, who voted against the renewal of Britain's nuclear deterrent in the Commons debate last night.
Jamie Reed, the MP for Copeland, branded Mr Corbyn's opposition "juvenile" and "narcissistic" and said shadow cabinet members who voted against Trident should resign and return to the backbenches because they would be voting against Labour Party policy.
And John Woodcock, the MP for Barrow and Furness, said: "There has long been a principled tradition of unilateralism in the Labour Party, I myself was born into it.
"But what Labour's front bench is currently doing is not principled. It shows contempt for the public, for party members and, often in what they say, for the truth."
