Drug offences are those covered by the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.
Drug offences are treated seriously in Alberta and may involve mandatory minimum jail sentences. They can range from the more simple cases, such as a pat down search that leads to drugs being found, all the way to the more complex investigations that involve search warrants and undercover officers.
Being charged with even a simple possession of drugs can result in serious consequences that impact your life. If you are charged with a drug offence it is important to know your rights and to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
