    A man who told a court the Chinese could ward off snakes with an ingredient used to make the drug speed has been given a suspended jail sentence.

    Ken Lee, 25, pleaded guilty in the District Court in Adelaide to importing 85 grams of pure pseudoephedrine into Australia last year in a shampoo bottle.

    The judge said he was sceptical about Lee's claim that Chinese people used the ingredient as a poison and to keep snakes at bay.

    He gave Lee a six-month suspended jail sentence and fined him $2,000
