He admitted supplying cannabis between last August and October as well as possessing cannabis, with intent to supply it, and possessing extreme pornography, on September 4.
Johnstone further admitted possessing cannabis for personal use when searched on October 13.
Victoria Rose, prosecuting, told Leicester Crown Court: "The phone revealed texts relating to the supply of cannabis to at least 14 people.
"It indicates a more commercial level than just social supply to friends."
She said the obscene clip was of men mutilating themselves.
The 20-year-old was said to have received it by Bluetooth.
Ronald Birkett, mitigating, said: "Someone sent it to him.
"He looked at the first 30 seconds and switched it off in shock and forgot to delete it."
Of the cannabis supply he said: "It was to a circle of friends. People found out and took advantage of it.
"He wasn't in it to make money but trying to be a popular friend.
"He feels he's let his family down."
