defending a drug charge in calgary

Defending a drug charge is becoming increasingly more difficult. Not only is an accused facing the weight of a potentially resource heavy police investigation – one that may involve a plethora of techniques including the use of undercover operators, wiretap, tracking devices, complex surveillance (such as from a motor vehicle, aircraft or video), ruse traffic detentions, search warrants and Confidential Informants – the accused must overcome the general stigma of being charged with a drug crime. The stigma emanating from many drug offences may be so overpowering as to cloud the presumption of innocence and to marginalize Charter rights in favour of the noble cause of convicting and incarcerating drug offenders. Trafficking in opioids is attracting very harsh sentencing responses from the Court.
