Concerned About Drug Possession Penalties in Saskatoon?

Possessing illegally obtained prescription drugs can have severe consequences if you are convicted. You could face fines, court costs, legal fees, additional fines, and the possibility of a prison sentence.

A conviction for a drug trafficking charge or drug arrest could entail many different possible sentences. The severity of any possible sentence will depend on many factors; some of which include whether you have any prior related criminal record or if your matter has factors that are considered aggravating (for example, it occurred in the direct vicinity of a school or is an offence where a mandatory minimum sentence is required). In the event you are convicted, the possible range of sentences can include the requirement to attend a drug diversion program to having to endure house arrest, to probation, or a lengthy jail sentence.
