Possession Charges

Possession of marijuana is a criminal offense under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. You donít have to own the marijuana; you just have to possess it. There are medical exceptions. If you are charged with possession of marijuana, you should speak to a lawyer. In court, the prosecutor, also called the crown counsel (Crown), must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you had control of the marijuana. For example, the police found it on you or in an area you controlled, such as a car, suitcase, or bedroom, and that you knew the marijuana was there.

Possession of a small amount of marijuana is less serious. The more you have, the greater the chance that you will be charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, a more serious offense with more severe penalties.
