DRUG POSSESSION AND PERSONAL CONSUMPTION – Drug Crimes
According to reliable statistics the ratio of individuals arrested due to drug possession is highest in Dubai in comparison to other emirates. A controlled substance is defined as illegal drugs that are classified by the government as being dangerous. According to the Dubai Department of Corrections, of 16,000 prisoners, 2,000 are in jail or prison due to a drug offense.
Drug possession typically goes hand in hand with drug sales. Drugs typically found in possession and/or sold on the street are: cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, synthetic cannabis like Spice and K2, PCP, heroin, LSD, ecstasy, and Tramadol. Oftentimes, if drugs are found in your possession you may be charged by law enforcement with possession with intent to sell, even if the drugs were for your own personal use.
The differences in the charges that can be brought against you for drug crimes are extreme. Penalties for a drug charge are based on the type and amount of drugs in your possession, intent to sell, or distribute, your past criminal record and the circumstances surrounding your case.
