Drug-related offences are one of the single largest areas of activity within criminal law. Prosecuting and Defending Drug Cases is a practical guide to the different types of drug offences, including possession, trafficking, importing, exporting, and production offences, as well as conspiracy and criminal organization offences in the context of drug distribution offences. These cases are addressed from both a prosecution and defence perspective, and provincial differences in practice or procedure are noted in each chapter.
The text also provides in-depth exploration of issues surrounding bail, disclosure, the Charter, and sentencing, alongside practice-oriented coverage of the Cannabis Act and Garofoli applications. This thorough and extensive text is sure to benefit any practitioner who works on cases involving drug-related offences.
