In Hamilton and across Canada, drug offences are defined by the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA). There are four primary categories of drug offences:


  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Traffick
  • Trafficking in a Controlled Substance
  • Importing a Controlled Substance


Being accused of unlawfully possessing a controlled substance means you’re alleged to have it for personal use. If charged with possession for trafficking, it means you’re accused of intending to sell, share, transport, or distribute it. This often involves a larger quantity of drugs found by police. Trafficking charges imply you’ve sold or distributed the substance, including to undercover officers. Importing a drug occurs when you bring an illegal substance into Canada, which can include drugs sent or delivered to you, not necessarily in your possession.


Parliament categorizes controlled substances into different schedules. Cocaine, fentanyl, morphine, and opium fall under Schedule 1 substances. Trafficking in Schedule I substances carries severe penalties, such as long penitentiary sentences and even life imprisonment for trafficking or possessing fentanyl or cocaine. Schedule III substances include LSD, psilocybin (magic mushrooms), and other hallucinogenic drugs. Convictions for trafficking or possessing Schedule III substances can lead to serious consequences, though typically less severe than those for Schedule I substances.


Drug charges often arise from the police obtaining search warrants for homes, apartments, condos, storage units, offices, and vehicles. They can also result from searching individuals incidentally arrested for unrelated charges. Drug investigations involve tactics like wiretapping, tracking cell phones and vehicles, and obtaining production orders for documents and records. Police must meet strict legal criteria to obtain warrants and production orders.
