CDSA: s.5(2) – Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking
My client was selling drugs from his parked vehicle. In addition to finding approx. 50 grams of marihuana, police also found numerous drug paraphernalia, indicative of trafficking, plus nearly $1500 cash in small bills.
The Crown was seeking a period of incarceration. He had a lengthy and related criminal record, including 25 prior convictions. He received a Conditional Sentence Order for 3 months, followed by probation for 6 months. No Jail.
