Following the blast, two people, who were allegedly producing drugs, were arrested and now have to deal with injuries and legal problems. The incident happened on Feb. 18, in a 19th floor apartment of a building near Lansdowne Avenue and Queen Street West....

Qualified legal representation a necessity if facing drug charges

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Wednesday August 26, 2015.

While the attitudes many have regarding the use of marijuana the production and use of the drug are softening, in Ontario, the cultivation and use is still illegal. Most people are likely aware that being charged with growing a large amount of marijuana could result in harsh penalties if one is convicted. Fewer people may be aware however that the consequences can be similarly severe if someone is found guilty...

In some situations manufacture and sale of legal drugs illegal

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Friday May 01, 2015.

When most people think about drugs that are trafficked throughout the Toronto area the first thing that likely comes to mind is street drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin and crack. While law enforcement agencies do go after people accused of dealing these types of drugs, there are other types that are considered illegal as well. Recently officers from several Toronto-area police forces made a drug bust in which seven...

Distinction between edible and dry cannabis at issue in Supreme Court case

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Wednesday March 25, 2015.

The Supreme Court of Canada is currently considering arguments about whether the regulation of medical marijuana -- specifically, edible cannabis products -- is arbitrary and unconstitutional. The case before the high court follows the acquittal of a British Columbia man who was charged with marijuana possession and marijuana trafficking.

Charged with conspiracy to commit a drug crime? Know your defence options

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Tuesday March 17, 2015.

Often people who find themselves charged with conspiracy in Ontario never thought they were "conspiring" to do anything. However, in legal terms, conspiracy occurs when two or more individuals agree together to commit a crime. In many cases, conspiracy charges are levelled in addition to other charges, which could include anything from embezzlement to drug importation. Most of the time, though, conspiracy charges are linked to drug crimes. If you...

Stakes are high for defendants in meth lab cases

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Thursday December 18, 2014.

The production of methamphetamine is increasingly seen by prosecutors, judges and the general community as a public health issue, and judges are under significant pressure to "send a message" when sentencing people to jail for manufacturing or trafficking meth. Because the household chemicals used in many meth labs can be extremely volatile, fires and explosions sometimes result, and defendants find themselves accused of property-related offences in addition to drug offences....

Government uses forfeiture laws to claim offenders’ property

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Drug Manufacturing & Cultivation on Thursday July 10, 2014.

Anyone who says that the federal and provincial governments are soft on marijuana crimes may need to rethink his or her opinion. Though it is far from universal, there are a number of cases in which the government will attempt to seize an offender's property solely because he or she had a marijuana grow op on the land. Because of criminal forfeiture laws, the government may have a claim to any land...
