I HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH POSSESSION OF COCAINE—WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?

Possession of Cocaine

Cocaine is illegal in Canada which means it is illegal to possess, cultivate and traffic for any purpose or use that is non-medical or non-government sanctioned. Cocaine charges are punishable by law and may include fines or even jail time.

Crown Attorneys take the use of illegal drugs very seriously and possessing sometimes trifling amounts can lead to a harsh sentence. This is elevated if one is charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking as the Crown and courts loathe the idea of drug dealers making profit off of vulnerable addicts.

SENTENCES

Sentences vary depending on many variables, including your criminal record, how much cocaine you were caught with and other facts of the case. The Crown must prove that you possessed the substance (knowledge, consent and control), the substance is a controlled substance, and that the possession was not authorized. The possible sentence for cocaine which is considered a Schedule I drug, and if it is prosecuted as an indictable offence, the sentence can be up to seven years imprisonment.
