If you are under investigation or have been charged with a drug offence, an experienced criminal lawyer can protect your rights. Drug-related offences can have extremely serious consequences. Simply being accused can destroy your reputation. If you are convicted of a drug offence such as drug possession, possession for the purposes of trafficking, trafficking, conspiracy, importation or production of illegal drugs, you may end up in prison, on probation, or subject to substantial fines. You will likely get a criminal record, which may permanently limit your employment opportunities and where you can travel. Even if you have been caught in the act or feel your case is hopeless, your first step should be finding a good drug lawyer.
