CDSA: s.4(1) – Possession of a Controlled Substance
My client was pulled over while driving for some traffic violation. The police could smell fresh marijuana. He was arrested and searched. They found a total of 15 grams of marijuana, and an extensive amount of drug paraphernalia, including rolling papers, rollers, glass pipes, a bong, grinders, flavor drops, and an electric vaporizer.
He was referred to the Extra-Judicial Sanctions program, where he performed some community service hours and then the charge was withdrawn. No criminal conviction.
