A 50-year-old man plied a teenage girl with drugs and then raped her because she "wanted it", a court has heard.
Tony "Stumpy" Shane Wheatley, of Chermside, assaulted the 15-year-old girl when she was staying at his home between December 2009 and April 2010, the Supreme Court in Brisbane heard on Thursday.
He has pleaded not guilty to 21 charges, including four of rape, seven of indecent treatment of a child, and 10 of supplying drugs to a minor.
On the first day of Wheatley's trial, prosecutor Sal Vasta told the court his offending came to light when the teenager called the Kids Helpline to say she had been raped.
The court heard she told the counsellor and her mother during a three-way conference call that "Stumpy took my virginity".
She later told police he raped her on four occasions after giving her so much cannabis that she had trouble sitting upright.
He also allegedly masturbated in front of her and fondled her breasts.
"She's stoned off her brain, and he's just taken advantage of her," Mr Vasta said.
The teenager told police Wheatley had blamed her for his actions.
"You wanted it, it's not my fault," he allegedly said.
The court heard that when she refused to have sex with him again, he reduced the amount of cannabis he was giving her, saying: "If I'm not getting what I want, then you're not getting what you want.
"It's a lot of pot you're smoking without me being laid," he allegedly said.
The trial is expected to run for five days

Another example of laws for criminals, and how the 'justice' system will let these criminals roam the streets freely.
Drug possession is also another charge that should see him incarcerated, but will not.
