The law of Drug Supply can appear harsh. It is designed to combat and deter the illegal drug industry. Due to this, a supply can occur by distributing ecstasy at a party, passing a joint of cannabis around, or even returning drugs someone has given to you for safekeeping.
There are a number of offences covered by Drug Supply, including:
- Actual Supply;
- Offering to Supply;
- Being Concerned in Supply;
- Possession with Intent to Supply.
Depending on the intention and the classification of the drug in question, cases of this kind may be heard in the Magistrates’ Court or the Crown Court.
Considerations for sentence will include the quality and quantity of the drug (street value) the classification of the drug, whether the dealing is part of an operation and possibly the role taken in such an operation.
If you are accused of Drugs Supply, 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.
