Drug Offences


If you’re facing drug charges, you should know that you are in a very serious situation facing hefty penalties if you’re found guilty. That’s why getting in touch with an experienced criminal lawyer should be the first thing you do, no matter where you are in Western Australia.


Under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1981, it is illegal to use, possess, cultivate, manufacture or supply an illicit drug. The penalties vary depending on the offence, but supply offences carry more substantial maximum penalties than possession offences. For more information on the Misuse of Drugs Act, or if you’ve been charged with a drug offence call us on 08 6141 3128.


Which drugs are prohibited? Here are some of the prohibited or illicit drugs under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1981:

  • Cocaine, Ecgonine, Heroin, and Morphine
  • Methylamphetamine
  • Cannabis and Cannabis Plants
  • Opium
