In Canada, drug possession is a crime covered by the Food and Drug Act and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. There are various categories of illegal drugs and there are also many different types of drug charges related to drug possession, trafficking, or production. The different categories of sentences depend on the amount of drugs, circumstances, jurisdiction, and type of drugs involved. The set of laws governing all of these aspects are quite complex. Within this context, drug charges should be dealt with by a professional criminal lawyer who is specialized in understanding all the legal risks deriving from having illegal drugs either for personal use, sale, distribution, or otherwise.
