There are three main classifications of illegal drugs:
- Class A: including ecstasy, cocaine and heroin;
- Class B: including cannabis and ketamine;
- Class C: including tranquillisers and testosterone.
The category of the drug will affect the seriousness of the offence, with Class A being the most serious and Class C being the least. The prosecution will need to determine the level of knowledge and involvement the accused had in relation to the offence and in order to do so the police may be able to search your home and work and seize your property, including your phone and/or computer, or conduct a search of your person if they believe you are acting suspiciously. Knowledge does not necessarily mean knowledge that it is a controlled drug, but merely knowledge of possession of something which is in fact a controlled drug.
If you are accused of Drugs Possession, you should seek legal advice immediately.
It is vital that you receive the best advice possible and provide as much detail of the facts of your case as you can to ensure the right result for you.
MK Law is on hand to help you through all stages of the process.
