A drug charge in Queensland is dealt with very seriously in the courts. There are a wide variety of drug offences ranging from simple possession to more serious charges such as producing dangerous drugs and trafficking. The seriousness of a drug charge depends on the drug involved, the amount of the drug and whether a person was merely possessing drugs or had an intention of selling those drugs.
The government has separated drugs into 2 different classifications being schedule 1 drugs and schedule 2 drugs. Schedule 1 drugs are considered the most serious category of drugs.
What are schedule 1 and schedule 2 drugs?
Schedule 1 drugs are considered to be the most dangerous drugs; the penalties in relation to them are more severe. A few examples for the schedule 1 drugs are cocaine, heroin, LSD, amphetamines and speed.
