Parkdale pair arrested for arson, suspected of producing drugs

There are times when the best of plans can go horribly wrong. Perhaps that was the case just before a large explosion in a Toronto apartment building recently. Following the blast, two people, who were allegedly producing drugs, were arrested and now have to deal with injuries and legal problems.

Qualified legal representation a necessity if facing drug charges

While the attitudes many have regarding the use of marijuana the production and use of the drug are softening, in Ontario, the cultivation and use is still illegal. Most people are likely aware that being charged with growing a large amount of marijuana could result in harsh penalties if one is convicted. Fewer people may be aware however that the consequences can be similarly severe if someone is found guilty of growing even a small amount.

In some situations manufacture and sale of legal drugs illegal

When most people think about drugs that are trafficked throughout the Toronto area the first thing that likely comes to mind is street drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin and crack. While law enforcement agencies do go after people accused of dealing these types of drugs, there are other types that are considered illegal as well.

Distinction between edible and dry cannabis at issue in Supreme Court case

The Supreme Court of Canada is currently considering arguments about whether the regulation of medical marijuana -- specifically, edible cannabis products -- is arbitrary and unconstitutional.

Charged with conspiracy to commit a drug crime? Know your defence options

Often people who find themselves charged with conspiracy in Ontario never thought they were "conspiring" to do anything. However, in legal terms, conspiracy occurs when two or more individuals agree together to commit a crime.

A man is dealing with more than burn injuries after an explosion recently blew off the front door of his sixth-floor condo in Toronto's Liberty Village.

7 charged in connection with Tyendinaga grow-op

Being accused of growing even a small amount of marijuana in Ontario can lead to serious legal consequences. In addition to fines and incarceration, the penalties for running a grow-op may include a restriction on an individual's ability to cross into the United States. If you have been charged with illegal drug production, then it is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side to intervene early in the legal process and develop strategies for protecting your rights and freedom.

Government uses forfeiture laws to claim offenders' property

Anyone who says that the federal and provincial governments are soft on marijuana crimes may need to rethink his or her opinion. Though it is far from universal, there are a number of cases in which the government will attempt to seize an offender's property solely because he or she had a marijuana grow op on the land.

Manufacturer charged with producing controlled substances

Are synthetic drugs illegal? Health Canada and the police say they are, but the CEO of one of the biggest synthetic drug manufacturers says that none of the ingredients of his company's products are considered controlled substances. So, who is right? There is no real answer, but if the police and Health Canada have said the drugs are illegal, an individual could find him- or herself in serious trouble, even if the drugs are eventually considered legal.
