Like most jurisdictions, law enforcement in Cochrane has devoted substantial resources to investigating drug offences. Though Cochrane is not like Calgary (and other big Cities) in-so-far as the sophistication and scope of drug crime, it is nevertheless a place where the police consistently lay charges for low level drug offences (including cocaine, meth and Fentanyl). Low level does not necessarily translate into a meaningless penalty. By way of example, small scale commercial trafficking of cocaine attracts a starting point of 3 years in jail. Heroin, 4 years, Fentanyl, 5-7 years.
Cochrane is also an RCMP hub for "pipeline" investigations. In a pipeline investigation, the RCMP patrols the Trans-Canada Highway and other highways for suspected drug transporters/importers.
In light of the jeopardy for a drug conviction, it is important for you to be duly diligent with respect to your case. Get advice from a proven Cochrane drug lawyer.
