Under the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985 (NSW), Section 10, having a prohibited drug in your possession is a crime and can lead to a maximum sentence of 2 years in prison and/or a fine of $2200. While drug possession may be seen as a minor offence, a conviction can result in a criminal record and significantly affect one's personal life, future employment or future travel aspirations.

Nevertheless, with having a specialist drug defence lawyer on your side, you may be able to prevent this outcome by effectively presenting your case to the Judge or Magistrate and possibly receiving a section 10 dismissal or a non-conviction conditional release order, stopping you from having a criminal record entirely.


Supplying prohibited drugs is illegal under Section 25 of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985 (NSW), this is when you are involved in sale and distribution of an illegal drug including popular drugs such as:

  • MDMA

  • Cocaine

  • Heroin,

  • Methylamphetamine and others listed in schedule 1 of the same act. 

The penalties for this offence are varied, including full-time imprisonment, this is determined by both the type and the amount of substance involved. Aspects such as the quantity and purity of the drug, the degree of one's involvement, trafficking or supplying to a substantial degree, the presence of a drug addiction, among others, can also influence the seriousness of your case. 

Given these complexities, it is crucial to have an experienced drug offence lawyer in order to provide the correct expertise to make sure you're not only defended but also advised on the best course of action moving forward.


In NSW, the law prohibits the supply, possession, or cultivation of a banned plant, this includes Cannabis. This occurs when you are found growing or cultivating plants, this includes watering, supplying plants and having them in your possession. 

Whether done through enhanced indoor techniques or outdoors, as stipulated in Section 23 of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985 (NSW), it is an offence and can be punishable for over 15 years imprisonment if cultivated for commercial use. It is important to have expert legal guidance when confronted with such charges due to difficulties involved in drug laws and the significant penalties at stake.
