Drug Offences Lawyers in Winnipeg Safeguarding Your Rights
The two main elements of possession are knowledge and control. If you don’t have knowledge you are not in possession. If you don’t have control you are not in possession. These are the starting points of a legal defence, and your criminal lawyer in Winnipeg from Simmonds and Associates will work tirelessly to establish a strong defence.
The vast majority of drug offences are intertwined with attacking the search warrant where one exists or the search itself. There are many elements to these defences, and in particular, breaches of the Canadian Charter.

You need a drug offences lawyer in Winnipeg who has experience defending these cases. The nature of the drug is also important. The courts treat marijuana, cocaine, fentanyl, and meth differently from one another.
