Possession charges are imposed on individuals found with drugs for the purpose of personal use. Trafficking charges occur when individuals are found with large amounts of drugs with the intent to sell or give those drugs to others. Importing charges occur when an individual is found entering into Canada with an illegal substance. Importing charges are also imposed on individuals who facilitate the transportation of illegal substances into Canada via other individuals. Drug production charges occur when an individual is found to be involved in any step of an illegal drug manufacturing process.
