Defence to Drug Offence

Most common misunderstanding we have about drug possession charges is that some of us believes that as long as the drug is not mine, I am not doing anything wrong. You need to understand the meaning of “Possession”, you can be in possession of someone else’s belongings. So, if police finds you with drug or drugs in your house or property that your friends may own, maybe some cannabis, weed, methamphetamine, ice, green, MDMA or whatever drug it is, then you could be charged with s.9 of drug misuse act!

Drugs Misuse Act 1986 (QLD)
Section 9 Possessing dangerous drugs

(1) A person who unlawfully has possession of a dangerous drug is guilty of a crime Maximum penalty could 25 years of imprisonment.
