Drug Possession and Drug Dealing Charges in BC

Here’s what you need to know:

Call a Drug Defence Lawyer Immediately

Before you do anything else or speak to anyone else, call a specialized drug defence lawyer. A criminal lawyer like Jerry Steele will immediately provide you with legal advice and guidance on how to proceed. Your lawyer will also act as a buffer between you and law enforcement, so your rights are protected and you don’t say or do anything that could harm your case.

Once they talk to their lawyer, people who have been charged with drug possession or other crimes often feel much more at ease and hopeful about their future. An experienced lawyer will have seen and done it all when it comes to drug charges, and they can offer you the comfort, guidance, and reassurance you need to get through this difficult time.

Understand the Differences Between Drug Possession and Drug Dealing Charges

Drug possession and drug dealing charges may have similar consequences, but they are very different offences. Drug possession means having illegal drugs on your person or in your control, while drug dealing involves selling, trafficking, or distributing illicit substances.

Your criminal lawyer will help you understand the specific charges against you and what evidence is being used to support those charges. Once you clearly understand the charges, you can start building a solid defence.

Use All Available Legal Defences

With the help of a skilled lawyer, you can explore all possible legal defences to fight your drug charges. Some common defences include: 

  • Challenging the legality of the search that led to your arrest
  • Arguing that the drugs were planted or belonged to someone else
  • Questioning the reliability of eyewitness testimony or informant evidence
