Understanding Drug Offences in NSW

Drug offences in NSW encompass a wide range of activities, from possession and supply to cultivation and manufacture. The severity of the charges and potential penalties depend on the specific circumstances of each case. Here’s an overview of some common drug offences:

  • Possession: This is the act of having a prohibited drug in your custody or control. The severity of the charge depends on the type and quantity of the drug. Small quantities for personal use may attract a lesser penalty compared to possessing larger quantities suspected for supply.
  • Supply: Supplying a prohibited drug is a more serious offence than possession. This includes selling, giving away, or offering a drug to another person. The penalties for supply offences can be significant, and may involve imprisonment depending on the type and quantity of the drug involved.
  • Cultivation: Growing a prohibited plant like cannabis is considered cultivation. The penalties for cultivating drugs can vary depending on the number of plants and the potential yield.
  • Manufacture: This offence involves processing or creating a prohibited drug. Manufacturing offences are typically more serious than possession or cultivation and can attract harsher penalties.

Additional Considerations

  • Intent: The intent behind possessing or supplying a drug can influence the charges laid. Possession for personal use may be treated differently than possession for supply.
  • Prior Offences: A history of drug offences can lead to more severe penalties for subsequent offences.
