Drug Possession

Charged With Drug Possession? Protect Yourself With A Vigorous Defence

A conviction on a drug possession charge is a serious matter. A criminal record will restrict your ability to travel freely. A drug record may impact future job prospects. A serious drug crime will result in jail time.

You need a strong advocate to defend your rights. At Risen, Inch & Fraser, we have extensive experience defending clients against a range of drug possession charges in Oshawa, Durham region, and across the Greater Toronto Area.

Powerful Representation Against Federal Drug Prosecutors

Canadian drug cases are prosecuted at a federal level by a dedicated team. They use specialized tools and specific training in an attempt to convict people on a range of charges relating to the possession of:

  • Opioids including heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, and hydrocodone
  • Methamphetamines
  • Ecstasy (MDMA)
  • Cannabis
  • Cocaine
  • Hashish
  • Psilocybin mushrooms (magic mushrooms)

Whether or not the prosecution is able to successfully convict you hinges on several key points, such as:

  • Were you aware of the substance?
  • Was the substance an illegal drug?
  • Did you have control over the substance?

Just because you were charged with drug possession does not mean you will automatically be convicted. A suspicion or hunch is not enough — there must be proof beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict.
