Seen as a gateway drug leading to the use of harder street drugs, prescription narcotics and other controlled substances, law enforcement takes marijuana possession very seriously. If you have been arrested and charged with a marijuana crime, it is imperative that you consult a defence lawyer who is well versed in Alberta marijuana laws. The criminal defence team at Haryett & Company will fight to ensure your rights are upheld and protected.
Sale or Trafficking of Marijuana
The consequences of a marijuana crime conviction, including fines, prison time are directly related to the amount you are caught with. Whether or not you were found to be selling at or near a school will also influence the severity of the penalties you face, and using a minor to distribute marijuana or selling marijuana to someone under the age of 16 will carry with it a minimum mandatory period of incarceration.
Your Life after a Marijuana Crime Conviction
Any drug crime puts your freedom and future at risk, and attempting to defend yourself against such charges could prove to be a costly mistake. The highly skilled and experienced team at Haryett & Company make every possible effort to ensure that your rights, driving privileges and reputation will be protected throughout the entire legal process.
