Drug Offences

Drug Offences

This category encompasses importation, cultivation, production, possession and supply of controlled drugs. Controlled drugs can include prescription drugs as well as illegal substances within any class such as cannabis, cocaine and heroin.

Drug use has become ever present in society, especially the use of recreational drugs such as cannabis, with a large proportion of people calling for its legalisation. Possession of any amount of prohibited drug is an offence. Often recreational users have a significant amount of cannabis due to “bulk-buying” and can be subjected to allegations of supply (PWITS). Our solicitors have successfully defended such clients reducing charges involving large amounts of prohibited drugs to simple possession.

Commonly these offences do not just involve an individual, rather a person part of a larger enterprise. With “County Lines” rising, we find that younger teenagers and even children become embroiled in such investigations and trials through modern day slavery.

Investigations of this kind consist of significant evidence including surveillance operations, CCTV, cell site data and financial investigations; often involving multiple agencies such as HMRC, NCA and various police forces.

Expert analysis of the evidence is required in these cases, it is not enough to just have a strong advocate. We believe that such cases are won in the examination of the evidence used by the prosecution and finding the reasonable doubt sufficient for acquittal.
