Crime & Extradition > Drug Offences
Offences for illegal drugs can take many forms. If you are caught with a Class B “controlled substance” such as cannabis in your possession you can face up to five years in jail. Supplying a more harmful Class A drug like heroin carries a possible life sentence.
DO YOU NEED ADVICE?
If you and others formulate a plan to carry out a criminal offence such as dealing in a Class A drug, this is known as ‘conspiracy to supply’. A conviction for this could see you sentenced and placed in jail for life.
Penalties for drug offences can be particularly harsh; for example, you can be charged with possession if you only have a small amount. Harsh penalties can also occur if you did not know it was a controlled substance, or even if it is not yours.
You can be charged for the supply of drugs or intent to supply if the amount of substance found on your person is more than what seems to be for personal use. As well as this, you can be charged for supply, even if you have not taken any payment for the substances.
