All Drug Offences

The potential penalties that a person may face for convictions with respect to drug offences vary greatly depending on:

  • The type of drug involved (drugs are classified into schedules under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act);
  • The quantity of drug involved;
  • Whether the person has a criminal record, and in particular a related criminal record;
  • The seriousness of the type of offence alleged (i.e. drug importing, drug trafficking, drug production and marijuana grow ops, possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession, etc.).

Even a conviction for a relatively minor drug possession charge could result in a criminal record that can adversely impact a person's employment prospects, their ability to travel, etc. More serious drug offence convictions can result in lengthy periods of incarceration.
