Our Brisbane drug lawyers act for all persons charged with drug offences.

Our Brisbane drug lawyers act for all persons charged with drug offences. Queensland has very specific legislation regarding drug offences, which can often be quite confusing. Moreover, penalties for drug offences can reach up to 25 years in prison, so it is very important to seek legal advice.

We act for all persons charged with any of the following drug offences;

  • Possession of illegal drugs
  • Supplying or trafficking illegal drugs
  • Cultivating or producing illegal drugs
  • Publishing or possessing a recipe for the production of a dangerous drug
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia (items used to produce or take drugs)
  • Permitting a place to be used for a drug offense
  • Any involvement with a drug laboratory
  • Drug driving

More information on the specifics of each of these offences can be found through the Queensland Government here.

The penalties for the offences listed above depends on the amount and type of drug involved. In Queensland, illegal drugs are divided into three categories. Schedule 1 Part 1 drugs carry the most severe penalties, and include drugs such as heroin, cocaine and amphetamine. Recently, legislators added “Part 2” to Schedule 1 to include all anabolic and androgenic steroidal agents. Schedule 2 drugs include but are not limited to cannabis, morphine and pethidine.

Hiring a specialist criminal lawyer to guide you through drug charge proceedings will greatly increase your chances of receiving a less severe penalty. Your drug lawyer may even be able to avoid prison time or fines in place of you attending a Police Drug Diversion Program.

Guest Lawyers offer free initial consultations (including in prisons) to assist with a number of assault charges. We act for all persons required to appear before the Magistrates and Supreme Court. We also conduct appeals in the Court of Appeal and High Court.

Our team of Brisbane criminal lawyers are licensed to practice across Australia and often travel to other states and territories to do so. Please get in touch with our lawyers either via Guest Lawyers’ email or by calling (07) 3211 3007.
