iStock-847300158.jpgMost drug related offences are charged under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. However we can also advise in relation to offences alleged under the more recent Psychoactive Substances Act 2016.

Whether you have been charged with possession of a small quantity of a controlled drug, or you are accused of larger scale supply or production/ cultivation drugs of drugs, or permitting your premises to used for that purpose, these are all matters we have experience of dealing with, and can advise you about any defences that may be available. The legal definitions of terms such as ‘possession’, ‘supply’ ‘being concerned in supply’ or ‘making an offer to supply’ can be complicated, and require more explanation.

In the event of a conviction for drug relating offences, there may be minimum sentences set down by Parliament which apply to your case if you have previous convictions. In some cases, there may be an argument to avoid the minimum term, and that is something we can discuss with you.
