Drug offences can vary from the very minor to the very serious. In cases of simple possession of marijuana, for example, it is often possible to resolve the file without a criminal record, utilizing the Alternative Measures system.
For more serious charges such as Trafficking, jail is a common result. Depending on the substance a conviction could lead to life in prison. It is extremely important to consult an experienced lawyer for any type of drug related offence.
