Drug Offences

Drug Offences in Victoria

Drug offences are among the most common principal offences in Australia. Drug offence lawyers deal with hundreds of drug cases every month in the Magistrates and higher courts of Victoria. Drug crimes involve illegal drugs that you either cannot legally obtain without prescription, or cannot legally possess under any circumstance. A list of these drugs can be found in the Drugs, Poisons and Controlled Substances Act 1981 (Drugs Act) with the most common being cannabis, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and ecstasy.

Most of the drug offences in the state of Victoria can be found in the Drugs Act. They are classified into 4 categories: (1) drug use, (2) drug possession, (3) drug trafficking, and (4) cultivation of plants from which drugs are obtained. It must also be noted that it is a drug offence to attempt, to conspire, or to encourage someone else to commit a drug offence. Importing and exporting illegal drugs is also a crime although this is under federal law and carries more severe penalties.

Despite my stress, Holly was the ultimate professional, understanding and took the entire situation in her stride.
