If you have been charged with a drug offence, our drug offence lawyers in Melbourne offer a free fifteen minute consultation to help you.
The term “drug charges” can be applied to a very wide range of circumstances. The severity of which can depend on the substance in question and the quantities involved in the alleged offence. If you contact our drug offence lawyers in Melbourne, we can listen to your description of the situation and understand the charges that may be brought against you.
Drug offences can range from possession of small quantities of street drugs, through to the trafficking of large commercial quantities of illegal drugs. Some of the more common substances related to drug offence charges are cannabis, methamphetamines (Ice), heroin, GHB and cocaine. Drugs are classified in different categories or classes, and the consequences of the possession, distribution or manufacture of each can vary. Again, our drug offence lawyers can explain this to you if required.
Obviously, being found guilty of a drug offence is a serious matter. We would recommend that you get professional legal advice before making comments or partaking in an interview where the result could be an accusation of a criminal drug offence.
