the reality is this.
any small, autoflowering, feminized plant is going to produce a shoddy yeild of less than quality bud. i would stay away from anything with rider in the name, i burned myself for 5 months trying to perpetually harvest lowrider. stick with plants that dont have ruderalis stock in them. auto-flowers are okay, but i prefer just feminised seeds, there's very little to go wrong.
if height is an issue you should research LST (low stress tolerance), you can get a bigger yield from a smaller plant (height-wise) by growing the stem horizontally.
but regardless of most genetics, plants will grow as fast as you allow them to( the environment is crucial). relying on genetics for such things is a recipe for disaster. any plant can be made to grow short, almost any plant can be made to grow fast. growing is, and should be time consuming, fun, educational, and work. do not plan to not be working all the time with your plants. its like parenting, when the kids are awake (the lights are on), its a full time gig.
also weed is pungent, if a tiny bag of dried stuff can make your room smell, imagine what a living breathing plant will do. if youre growing indoors you'll already need ventilation, so that will take care of the smell, mostly. but be aware, if you live with your parents or anyone else who doesnt want you growing weed, they will know as soon as that plant gets big. i grow in my attic, and you can smell weed all through the house, of course theres a difference between 20 plants and a single plant, but they will still smell, its a fact.
on a side note, with less than 50$ how do you plan on purchasing things such as lights, nutes, and the materials for the grow.
if your tight on money, and this is your first time try to grow some bagseed. my first years growing were only done with bagseed, and the plants were just as pretty and high yielding as some pics you see on the seedbank. just because the bagweed is brown and bricked doesnt mean that's how the plants grows.
but to answer your question simply, the least smelly weed i ever grew was chemdog (chemdawg?). a friend was cossing chemdog with jack herrer two years ago and passed a few seeds my way i only ended up with one female chemdog plant, but it grew in hydro, under 400w hps and smelled like lipton iced tea, now im done
