German police detained a man after he tried to pay for a taxi ride with cannabis - because he was fresh out of cash, police said Sunday.

Officers in the southern city of Munich accompanied the 30-year-old home on Friday after the taxi driver reported him to the police, and found 31 cannabis plants in his flat.

Police also seized 353 grammes (12.5 ounces) of cannabis as well as scales and cannabis oil.

He told the police officers the plants were for his personal consumption as he did not want to rely on dealers.
