What is the law in South Australia regarding Cannabis offences?

If you sell a controlled plant or any of its product (cannabis, seeds or part of the plant), or have possession of a controlled plant for that purpose you commit a serious offence. If you have greater than a trafficable quantity then it is deemed you had it, or its produce for the purpose of sale, unless you can prove otherwise.

It is an offence to cultivate any controlled plant. If you cultivate 1 cannabis plant (without artificial lights, heat, water or nutrients, etc.), then you may receive an expiation notice as long as it was for your personal use. Even if you grow 1 cannabis plant hydroponically, you will have to go to court and risk a criminal record.

Cannabis Offence Lawyer in Adelaide

If you cultivate a single controlled plant for supply (which includes distributing or offer) to another, or have greater than 5 plants, then you will have to go to court. Remember, if you have more than 10 plants, you are deemed to have a trafficable quantity and will have to prove you did not cultivate or possess them for sale.

If you cultivate greater than 20 plants (including clones) then your matter may have to be heard in the Central District Criminal Court where higher penalties exist.

Generally, cultivation is the growing and tending of the plants, and once harvesting occurs the product is considered to constitute possession. That can lead to unfair outcomes in our view. At Woods & Co we are experienced in negotiating favorable outcomes for our clients.

They are reliable, honest and operate with integrity. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for some great legal advocacy and support. Ben always takes the time to answer any questions I may have, and provides me with all the options available. As a new with a legal matter, it can be difficult to find a suitable lawyer. I was lucky to be connected to Ben. On another note, their charges were also very reasonable to the services they provided.

I highly recommend Woods&Co Lawyers. I got into big trouble for the first time and of course was scared out of my mind. MICHAEL WOODS AND HUGH WOODS and the rest of the team eased my mind about the whole process. Definitely great customer service and professionalism. I am also very happy with the deal I got. If I ever (which I hope I don’t) get into any other trouble, WOODS&CO Lawyers is the one I will call on. Thank you so much for everything!
