Drug Offences

Offences involving drugs and illicit substances can attract significant penalties in Australia that can result in a lengthy period in jail time for anyone found guilty of a drug offence. The laws surrounding drug offences can be complex and technical and can involve:

·         use of drugs

·         possession of drugs

·         cultivation and manufacturing of drugs and narcotic plants (marijuana, opium)

·         supply and trafficking

·         conspiracy

·         possession of implements or equipment to manufacture drugs

Because drug offences involve a wide range and a number of technical elements, it is essential that if you are in trouble with the law due to an offence involving illicit substances, you are able to find a lawyer on the FindLaw Directory who will be able to help with any drug matter.
