Drug offences in London and across Canada are defined by the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA). There are four primary types:


  • Possession of a Controlled Substance
  • Possession of a Drug of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell
  • Selling a Controlled Substance
  • Bringing a Controlled Substance into the Country


Being accused of unlawfully possessing a controlled substance suggests you had it for personal use. If charged with possessing a drug for trafficking, it means you allegedly intended to sell, share, transport, or give it to others, often involving a larger quantity found by police. Trafficking charges imply you allegedly sold or distributed drugs to others, including undercover officers. Importing drugs involves bringing illegal substances into Canada, which can include those sent or delivered to you.


Controlled substances are categorized into different schedules by Parliament. For instance, cocaine, fentanyl, morphine, and opium fall under Schedule 1. Trafficking in Schedule 1 substances can lead to severe penalties, such as long prison sentences or even life imprisonment for trafficking or possessing fentanyl or cocaine. Schedule III includes LSD, psilocybin (magic mushrooms), and other hallucinogens. Convictions for trafficking or possessing Schedule III substances can have serious repercussions, although generally less severe than for Schedule I substances.


Police often obtain search warrants to investigate drug charges in homes, apartments, condos, storage units, offices, and vehicles. Searches can also occur incidentally when someone is arrested for an unrelated offence. Drug investigations may involve wiretapping, tracking cell phones and vehicles, and obtaining production orders for documents. Police must meet strict legal criteria to obtain these warrants and orders. At Posner, Craig, Stein, our lawyers are skilled in challenging the legality of search warrants, wiretaps, production orders, and other judicial authorizations that may infringe on our clients’ privacy rights.
