Jail Cell

Drug Crime Law

Many drug-related crimes carry extremely heavy jail sentences and fines. If you are ever convicted of a drug crime, that conviction may stay on your record for the rest of your life and could affect your chances of getting a job, a loan, or even an apartment. Sometimes, even hardworking and upstanding Alberta citizens are charged with drug possession. Just a small amount of an illicit substance can result in legal consequences that stay with you forever. Travel to other countries may prove impossible if you have a drug conviction.

Understanding Offenses

The Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) outlines consequences for drug offenses. Charges for drug possession carry less severe consequences than the alleged sale or transfer of a drug, charged as drug trafficking. Expect us to understand clearly what you are charged with and the details of the evidence against you as we build a case on your behalf.


Drug Manufacturing Charges

Drug manufacturing charges are dealt with under CDSA. This is federal drug legislation under Canadian law that levies the same severe consequences as a conviction under the Criminal Code. These laws are technical and demand representation from a knowledgeable lawyer who can protect your interests, freedom, and reputation.

From challenging evidence obtained through illegal search and seizure tactics to making sure that the Crown proves every element of the offense, we mount a thorough defense. We handle drug manufacturing charges that involve the production of:

Ecstasy – Methamphetamine – Cocaine – Marijuana – Counterfeit Prescription Drugs

Pills

Effective Legal Counsel

In recent years, the laws surrounding possession of certain drugs, specifically marijuana, have changed. The penalties for these kinds of possession are less severe than they were in the past. However, there are specific criteria that must be met in order for accused people to receive a lesser penalty. The amount of the drug at issue and the accused person's personal history with the law are important factors in this determination. For this very reason, take the time to consult with us. We can give you a better understanding of the charges you are facing, your constitutional rights, and your legal options.
