  • Cannabis
  • Amphetamines
  • CodeineKetamine

Class C drugs include:

  • Steroids
  • Diazepam
  • Testosterone

The type of sentence imposed on an individual convicted of any drug offence will be determined by which Class the controlled drug in question is in and the circumstances surrounding the person’s involvement in the drug. The quantity and quality of that controlled drug will also contribute in determining the sentenceThe sentencing guidelines which the Court will use when determining sentence place an individual at real risk of custody.
