(Rock News Desk) AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd's conviction for possession of cannabis has been lifted after he appealed the ruling.

Rudd, real name Phillip Witscke Rudzevecuis, was fined $250 last year when he pled guilty to the charge of having 25g of the substance on his boat in his home town of Tauranga, New Zealand.

But lawyer Craig Tuck, told the court that any conviction would make it difficult for him to enter countries including the US, Canada and Japan, and that meant the relatively small offence would have an unreasonably large affect on his career. more on this story
