Have you been charged with Possession of Marijuana?
If you have been charged with possession of marijuana or another schedule drug under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, section 4, you will need to hire a lawyer to defend your case. Possession of marijuana (up to 30 grams) or hashish (up to 1 gram), is a Summary offence, and the maximum penalty is 6 months jail, or $1000 fine. Possession of marijuana over 30 grams is a hybrid offence where the Crown can elect to prosecute Summarily or Indictable. The maximum penalty for indictable is 5 years less a day jail. As you can see, there is a significant difference depending on the weight of the marijuana, which will play a role in whether the charge is prosecuted Summarily or by Indictable. The Federal Crown attorney will pursue drug charges vigorously in an effort to ensure that these types of offences which cause harm to the community are a matter of public concern. If you have been charged with a serious offence like drug possession, you must contact an experienced criminal lawyer without delay. We offer free consultations, so do not hesitate to call our office and speak to a lawyer immediately.
