Possession for the purpose of trafficking
A charge of possession for the purpose of trafficking may be added to a drug possession charge if a substantial amount of drugs is found during an arrest.

Our drug trafficking defense experience will give you peace of mind
Drug trafficking penalties for a criminal conviction include fines, court-ordered treatment and significant prison terms. If you or someone you know wants to avoid a serious drug trafficking penalty, contact the criminal defense lawyers at The Law Office of Gunn Law Group. We have decades of experience in successfully dismantling the prosecution’s case against you by scrutinizing the drug trafficking arrest, the police investigation and the collection of evidence.
Alberta drug possession laws prohibit any person from being in possession of and trafficking in illegal and illicit substances. These include substances such as marijuana, ecstasy, crystal meth, or cocaine. To prove possession, though, the prosecution must provide evidence that the accused person had both control over the illegal substance and knowledge of the substance.
The criminal law attorneys and drug lawyers at the The Law Office of Gunn Law Group have successfully defended a multitude of clients who have been arrested and charged with illegally trafficking illegal substances such as marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine, heroin, OxyContin, painkillers, and illegal prescription drugs.
In every defense of a drug trafficking case, one question exists: was the evidence used against you obtained lawfully? If the police performed an illegal search and seizure, the evidence cannot be used against you. We know the laws and can determine the best defense strategy based on these laws. We undermine the police investigation and prosecution’s case by scrutinizing 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 wiretap?
- Is the quality of the evidence against you questionable?
