Drug Charges

Drug offences include simple possession, trafficking, and the importing drugs into Canada. These offences are governed by the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Trafficking drugs covers a broad range of actions beyond selling drugs and you can be found guilty of trafficking drugs if you administer, give, transfer, transport, send, deliver or sell an authorization to obtain drugs.

This is a complicated area of law in which the lawyers of Coopers, Sandler, Shime & Schwartzentruber LLP have the knowledge and expertise to assist you.
