Drugs related offending
Have you been accused of a Drugs Offence and facing Drugs Charges?
Conviction for drugs offences relating to Class A, Class B and Class C drugs may rely on the type of drug involved and evidence of intent to supply/supply the substance. Drugs offences involving Class A drugs – heroin, cocaine, crystal meth, Ecstasy and licensed drugs like Temazepam – carry the heaviest penalties because the substances involved are highly addictive and are potentially damaging to health.
Accused of a Drugs Related Offence?
Drugs supply and possession involving Class B drugs like cannabis, ketamine, methadrone and amphetamines may carry less severe penalties for possession – but charges relating to serious crimes such as the importation or supply of all classification of drugs can result in lengthy custodial sentences.
Charges for supply and possession commonly involve:
- Possession of a controlled drug
- Possession with intent to supply
- Supplying a controlled drug
- Allowing premises to be used for consumption of controlled drugs.
- Production/being concerned in the production or allowing premises to be used for production of drugs whether for personal use or on a commercial or industrial scale.
Charges may also involve supplying a minor with a controlled drug – and in some cases, charges such as manslaughter may apply if supplying a drug results in the death of another person.
Not everyone charged with supply or possession of a controlled drug will be guilty of the charges – and it is vital to take legal advice as soon as possible for offences under the Misuse of Drugs Act and /or the Medicines Act, or if there is a likelihood of police interview under caution.
