Drug possession laws in Alberta prohibit a person from being in possession of illegal and illicit substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, crystal meth. To prove possession though, the prosecution must show that the accused person had both control and knowledge of the substance.
In every drug possession case, there is a question of whether the evidence against the accused was obtained lawfully or not. If the police performed an illegal search and seizure, the evidence cannot be used. We will weaken the police investigation and prosecution’s case by questioning the following:
- Was a search warrant issued?
- Were the terms of the warrant executed properly?
- Was there probable cause to issue a search warrant
- Was there probable cause to allow a wire tap?
- Is the quality of the evidence against you questionable?
