In Canada, the Controlled Drug and Substances Act (1996), regulates the possession and distribution of controlled substances. Controlled substances, as defined by Schedules I – VII ( SCHEDULE ), are illegal to possess, traffic, grow, produce, import and obtain. Penalties for engaging in these actions range from fines to life imprisonment. If you have been criminally charged under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act, it is essential to contact legal counsel due to the intricacies of the regulations and policies governing illegal substances.
