There are many different types of drug offences, some of the more common charges that arise include:–
Possession of Drugs
If the police find drugs in your possession, the drugs will be seized and destroyed. You may also be arrested. The drugs could be found on your person or in your property, such as in your car.
If the police believe the drugs were for your own personal use you will be questioned for the possession of drugs. If the police suspect that you intended to share the drugs with others, you could be questioned about possession with the intent to supply.
Intent to Supply and Drug Dealing
‘Supplying’ drugs means selling, dealing or sharing drugs with other people. It does not matter whether money exchanges hands. For example, if you buy drugs with the idea of sharing them with your friends, there is an intent to supply.
It is crucial that you obtain expert Legal Advice before you are questioned by the Police so that we can advise you on the evidence against you and the potential charges.
Drug Offence Penalties
The penalty for each offence depends on the type of drug you are found with. Drugs are put into one of three categories – A, B or C. Class A drugs are deemed to be the most dangerous to society and so carry the heaviest penalties.
