Best Recommendation: Talk to Us Now | Worst thing to do: Do Nothing
This category of offences includes many types and it really depends upon which offence or offences you have been charged.
For example, if you’ve been charged with possession of a small amount of pot, it is obviously significantly less serious than hauling drugs into the country in your yacht. But, then again, if this is your fourth or fifth time of possessing pot, then it’s getting a little more serious.
How hot the water you’re in can only be measured by giving us a call. But sooner rather than later because these types of matters can get out of control.
Here it is…but whatever you do, don’t represent yourself. It usually ends badly.
Drug Offences are under a piece of legislation called the Drugs Misuse Act. It’s a massive piece of law, hundreds of pages. You can read it all here if you wish:
A drug charge usually starts and ends with Queensland Police searching you, your property or your premises. In our experience, at times these searches are carried out unlawfully. It’s important in this respect that the search has been carried out in accordance with a search warrant or complies with circumstances below that allows Queensland Police to search.
If a search has been carried and is not compliant with the above requirements, then you should seek our intervention immediately.
A very tough question, because we don’t know your circumstances unless you tell us. You can do so here. Contact our criminal lawyers Brisbane.
But basically, for charges under the relevant legislation you can be looking at anything from merely a fine to participating in a drug diversion program right through to spending longer than you would like in the big house.
