The penalties for possession of a controlled substance can be very serious. A conviction for any drug possession offence, even marijuana, will most likely prevent you from being granted entry into other countries, particularly the United States. A more serious charge can result in imprisonment and large fines. If you have been charged with a drug offence you should consult with a lawyer immediately. Defending people charged with drug offences often involves complex legal arguments requiring a criminal defence lawyer experienced and skilled in Criminal Law. Successfully defending drug charges takes a unique understanding of the law including knowing what your rights are and knowing when your rights have been violated. We have this experience.
