The Law Relating To Drugs

By Guest Author On June 17, 2011 Under Improve Your Life, Self Help Tips, Setting Goals, Success Secrets

This article describes The Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 – I hope you enjoy the read. This act places ‘controlled’ substances into three different categories:

1. Class A:

Cocaine, crack, ecstasy, heroin, LSD, magic mushrooms prepared for use, amphetamines (if prepared for injection), and in some instances cannabis oil
The maximum penalty for possession is 7 years in prison and/or a fine.

2. Class B:

Amphetamines, Ritalin, barbiturates
The maximum penalty for possession is 5 years in prison and/or a fine
The maximum penalty for supply is 14 years in prison and/or a fine

3. Class C:

Cannabis, Rohypnol, GHB, temazepam, supply of anabolic steroids and tranquillisers

The maximum penalty for possession is 2 years in prison and/or a fine.

Prior to continuing I would like to make it clear that I am not involved in the legal system in any way; I actually offer home care advice and I also provide affordable air compressors. I also work at an infertility consultant centre on very much a part time basis. As you can see this is some what of a mixed bag! I am some what of a busy man but I have to say that I love what I do.

If an investigation has started or an arrest has been made is essential that professional advice be obtained from criminal defence solicitors as soon as possible. Now of course in the majority of the larger drug trafficking cases there are a number of people involved in the other operation, some from different countries in many situations. When this happens the prosecution is able to change the offence to conspiracy. This type of offence is rarely possible without the assistance or collusion of others and conspiracy charges may result from the most informal associations between those committing criminal offences.
