Stay Out of Jail
The charge of Supply Dangerous Drug is considered by the Courts of Queensland to be one of a contempt for the laws of Queensland, one which shows that the particular person in question believes that 'the laws do not apply to them'.
Supply Dangerous Drug penalties in Queensland reflect this.
In the instance where a person charged with Supply Dangerous Drug represents themselves, or appears at court with a lawyer who does not specialise in Qld Drug & Alcohol Crime, the Judge will only hear a comprehensive set of submissions from the Prosecutor, and they will be exposing themselves to greater Supply Dangerous Drug penalties.

It is impossible for an unrepresented person, or a lawyer who practices in multiple areas of law, to be as well versed in the Drug & Alcohol penalties and laws of Queensland as a Court Prosecutor.

A first time Supply Dangerous Drug offender in posession of a Schedule 1 drug (Amphetamine, Cocaine, LSD, Methyamphetamine / Ice, MDMA / Ecstacy faces a maximum penalty of 20 years imprisonment.
A first time Supply Dangerous Drug offender in posessions of a Schedule 2 drug (Cannabis) faces a maximum penalty of 15 years imprisonment.
Where the Dangerous Drug is supplied to a child or an intellectually impaired person, supplied within a school or prison, or supplied to a person who is unaware that the item is a Dangerous Drug, the maximum penalty becomes life imprisonment for Schedule 1 and 20 years for Schedule 2 items.
We are frequently successful in negotiating the reduction of Supply charges down to the lesser Possess Dangerous Drug.
Once dropped down to Possess, we ordinarily get both first time offender and repeat offender clients a fine only, or what is known as Drug Diversion, without any imprisonment.
Drug Diversion is a counselling session handed down in lieu if punishment.
When clients must proceed with the Supply charge and they face the very real risk of imprisonment, we frequently obtain wholly suspended sentences, and sentences with immediate parole, meaning client with this outcome do not actually go to jail.
