Drug Charges

Drug charges range in severity from simple possession, to production, to trafficking as part of a "criminal organization". Drug laws are wide ranging and complex. Possession can apply to anything listed in Schedule I, II or III of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and includes among others marijuana and ecstasy, but also includes certain prescription medications not in your name. The trafficking laws are much more wide ranging than simply supplying drugs in exchange for money and a person can be charged in a variety of circumstances even if money has not changed hands. Production may involve manufacture or cultivation which has a wide definition covering the entire plants life from planting the seed to the mature plant.

Drug related offences, if convicted, often carry mandatory minimum sentences and can involve heavy fines and extended jail time. Being convicted of any drug related offence can result in a criminal record that can affect career prospects and foreign travel.
