Serious Drugs Offences

Possessing, supplying or intending to supply illegal drugs are all viewed as serious acts of misconduct in the eyes of the law, and the punishments, although varied, can be very tough. It is therefore important that you get the right legal representation to guide you through every step of the process.

If you have been accused of committing such an offence, speak to our serious drugs offence solicitors today by calling us on 0345 872 6666. Alternatively, fill in our online enquiry form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

About Serious Drugs Offences

Drug offences come in various forms. Some of the most common charges are:

  • Possessing or supplying illegal drugs
  • Importation or trafficking illegal drugs
  • Importation of prohibited drugs in contravention of prohibition or licence

Accusations of serious drugs offences can often be complex. Arrests made will sometimes arise out of large-scale operations and cases can be linked to other crimes, such as money laundering or conspiracies to defraud. Having the right legal team to guide you through the intricacies of these cases is therefore essential. At JMW, we provide a service that gets the right results.

How Are Drugs Classified?

Illegal drugs are broadly categorised into three categories:

  • Class A includes ecstasy, cocaine, methadone, LSD, magic mushrooms and heroin
  • Class B includes cannabis, barbiturates, codeine, mephedrone and amphetamines, such as speed
  • Class C includes some tranquilisers, ketamine, GHB, benzyl piperazines and anabolic steroids
