Possession, trafficking and conspiracy to commit drug offences
Drug offences occupy a very large area of criminal law and are often intertwined with other complex sections of the Criminal Code dealing with proceeds of crime, extradition, search warrants, guns and gangs. To successfully defend drug charges, it is essential that you retain a law firm with extensive experience across a broad spectrum of related offences. Your lawyer must also have the ability to adapt to the rapidly changing drug laws that are evolving right now in Canada. Drug charges can be targeted at traditional illegal narcotics such as marijuana, cocaine, hashish and heroine but we have seen an increasing focus in recent years on so-called “rave” or “party” drugs including ecstasy, GHB, and ketamine. Another recent focus of police drug enforcement has been in the area of prescription drug abuse. Our lawyers have acted for many people (including doctors, nurses and pharmacists) who have been charged with possession or trafficking of substances such as OxyContin, oxycodone, morphine, and others.
The myth of the “simple” possession case
Many clients come to us facing a single drug charge of a relatively minor nature such as possession of small amounts of marijuana, cocaine or ecstasy. Particularly in the case of marijuana, there is a mistaken perception amongst the Canadian public that these offences are treated lightly. That is often not the case. If facing any sort of drug charge, it is vitally important that you contact a criminal lawyer who is familiar with drug prosecutions. Our lawyers are routinely successful in securing diversion for many drug offences so that our clients leave court without criminal records. Many professionals fail to realize until they are charged that even a “minor” possession of marijuana charge may need to be disclosed to their professional regulator and could impact their ability to remain licensed to practice.
It is also common for clients to be unaware that any record of a drug charge could create significant travel obstacles for many years to come – particularly as it relates to the USA. At our law firm, we have worked with doctors, lawyers, teachers, accountants and many other professionals to ensure that a single drug charge does not derail an entire career. There are various types of offences defined by the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act known as CDSA for short. Some of them are more serious than others, but neither one should be underestimated.
