Why Choose Jones + Associates Drug Charges Lawyers Brisbane for your Drug Charges matters
here are many different types of drugs offences that are prosecuted in Queensland, for example:
- Possess dangerous drugs;
- Supply dangerous drugs;
- Permit use of place;
- Trafficking dangerous drugs;
- Possess utensils;
- Possess instructions;
- Produce dangerous drugs;
- Possess prohibited combinations of items.
Each offence carries varying maximum penalties including up to 25 years imprisonment in relation to the most serious offence, Trafficking dangerous drugs.
The facts of every matter differ, and therefore penalties can vary widely for the same charges. By way of example, possessing 1 gram of cocaine would see a very different outcome to possessing 1 kilogram of cocaine, despite the charge being identical.
It is important to know that pursuant to the Drugs Misuse Act, a person may be liable for drugs found at their house or in their motor vehicle even if that person was not the ‘owner’ or even aware of the presence of the drugs.
The presumption at law is the owner or controller of the premises/vehicle is assumed to legally possess any items found unless they can convince the court otherwise on the balance of probabilities.
It is very common for police to attempt to search people or vehicles without warrants on the “reasonable suspicion” that there are drugs or other prohibited items inside those places, that may be of interest to police.
