In Newmarket and across Canada, drug offences are defined under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (“CDSA”). There are four primary types of drug offences:


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


Being charged with unlawfully possessing a controlled substance means you’re accused of having it for personal use. If facing charges for possessing a drug with intent to traffic, it means you’re accused of having it to sell, share, transport, or give to someone else. Typically, this involves the police finding a larger quantity of drugs. If charged with drug trafficking, it means you’re accused of selling or providing drugs to others, including undercover police. Importing drugs happens when you bring illegal substances into Canada, including those sent or delivered to you without being in your direct possession.


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


Police often obtain search warrants to investigate drug charges in various locations like homes, apartments, offices, and vehicles. They may also search individuals incidentally to other arrests. Drug investigations involve tactics such as wiretapping, tracking cell phones and vehicles, and obtaining production orders for documents. Police must meet strict legal standards to get these warrants and orders.
