Marijuana possession and use will be legal in Canada after October 17, 2018. But a Whitby driver greatly exceeded the new 30-gram limit and is facing charges after police seized 44 kilograms of marijuana from his car. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) allege that the driver was speeding on Highway 401 near Napanee. When police pulled the driver over, they saw large garbage bags in the back of his vehicle....

Will cannabis criminal records be expunged after legalization?

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in drug charges, Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation, Drug Possession, Drug Trafficking on Friday September 21, 2018.

Before October 16, 2018, an adult possessing 30 grams of cannabis is breaking the law. If convicted of possession, that person will have a criminal record. On and after October 17, 2018, possessing that cannabis will be perfectly legal. But a person’s criminal record for possessing cannabis will remain. This record can only be expunged under certain conditions and with the help of a criminal lawyer. Why a person’s criminal record...

Witnesses of the apparent violent crime said the suspects, who appeared to be armed, entered the shop at around 10 p.m. while some customers and employees were still there. When the cops...

Pair of Toronto men face allegations of drug and weapons crimes

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Wednesday May 17, 2017.

Police officers sometimes throw charges around like a chef throws pasta against the wall; they both just want to see what sticks. Unlike good spaghetti, however, serious criminal allegations are very unappetizing. Two men who can attest to that were arrested recently in north Toronto. On May 3, Toronto Police executed a search warrant at a home near Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue. During the search, officers seized a quantity of drugs...

Border agents arrested for allegedly importing illegal substances

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Tuesday May 02, 2017.

Drug charges come in many different forms and in varying degrees of severity. Charges for importing drugs are among the most severe, and an accusation of such should be of great concern to an individual. For someone whose job it is to prevent illegal drugs from entering the country, a charge of importing illegal substances may be personally devastating. Two border agents working at Toronto's Pearson International Airport face accusations that could...

RIDE check leads to drug trafficking charges outside Toronto

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Wednesday April 26, 2017.

Like a fishing trawler dragging a net, sometimes a police stop catches more than was originally intended. For anyone caught, it may seem like an unfair situation. An Ontario Provincial Police RIDE stop near Cambridge recently landed a car full of unwitting people who are now facing drug trafficking charges. On April 20, OPP officers conducting a RIDE check pulled over a vehicle at 12:56 a.m. on the ramp from Highway 24 to...

Police charge 2 men and a woman with drug trafficking and more

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Tuesday April 11, 2017.

When police make an arrest and there is an apparent abundance of physical evidence, it is an alarming turn of events for the accused. However, all suspects are presumed innocent unless proved otherwise; this is an important fact to remember during the aftermath of an arrest. Physical evidence abounded when two men and a woman were arrested in Toronto recently, and the trio now face various weapons and drug trafficking charges. As part...

Drug trafficking charges followed up a recent fentanyl overdose

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Trafficking on Thursday March 23, 2017.

Courts in Ontario treat any drug offences as serious crimes. Regardless of the severity of the charges, be it possession of a small amount of marijuana or drug trafficking of large amounts of illegal substances, penalties may be steep if a person is convicted. Having an experienced criminal defence lawyer on one’s side can help ensure that any accused individual proceeds with the best possible defense strategy. Police arrested a 46-year-old woman...
