What to do if you are charged with a drug-related offence


If you are charged with a drug-related offence do not plead guilty before you consult with one of our lawyers. We understand that all criminal allegations are serious to the person charged, and at Calvin Barry Professional Corporation, we have successfully defended numerous types of drug offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. Our firm will raise every possible and realistic defence at your disposal.


Our firm routinely submits Charter of Rights applications to exclude evidence based on arbitrary stops and illegal searches. Every drug case entails its own particular array of possible defences, and all the issues will be raised by our experienced lawyers during the trial.


Calvin Barry and his team have the experience and resources to identify viable defences and Charter of Rights challenges available in a particular case. Some of the charges that we frequently defend against include:

  • Drug possession: having even a small amount of an illegal substance on your person, in your home or in your car during a traffic stop can result in these charges.
  • Drug trafficking: distribution of drugs, even on a relatively small scale, can result in drug trafficking charges.
  • Drug production and marijuana grow ops: the cultivation of marijuana or manufacture of any other drug can lead to these charges.
  • Drug importing: these serious charges involve transporting drugs from one country to another. People at all levels of a drug importation operation can face these charges, although it is often the middleman or the low level "drug mule" who is caught crossing a border and arrested.

The penalties associated with convictions for drug offences vary depending on the severity of the offence, but even convictions for relatively minor offences can result in a criminal record that could impact employment prospects and more. Major drug offence convictions can result in lengthy periods of jail time.


The Calvin Barry Professional Corporation has the resources needed to defend you regardless of the severity of the alleged drug charge you are facing.


We will fight for your rights no matter the severity of charges. At Calvin Barry, you will be defended.
