Stay Out of Jail
The charge of Possess Dangerous Drug is considered by the Courts of Queensland to be one of a contempt for the laws of Queensland, one which shows that the particular person in question believes that 'the laws do not apply to them'.
Possess Dangerous Drug penalties in Queensland reflect this.
In the instance where a person charged with Possess Dangerous Drug represents themselves, or appears at court with a lawyer who does not specialise in Qld Drug & Alcohol Crime, the Magistrate or Judge will only hear a comprehensive set of submissions from the Prosecutor, and they will be exposing themselves to greater Possess Dangerous Drug penalties.
