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.

I contacted woods and co lawyers with a matter that I was not convinced could be resolved. After my meeting with Vivian Ngo, I was assured that she would do everything she could to help. Vivian was successful and my matter resolved quickly. I think Woods and Co , especially Vivian Ngo, are worth their weight in gold! Thank you again Ferruccio Cardellini ( Fish )

I would like to draw attention to the excellent and professional conduct of Ben chehade at woods and co, he worked tirelessly, and communicated with my partner and I every step of the process, After hours included to put together a genuine supporting argument to secure me a favourable result on a criminal matter, I will make it clear that breaking the law will always draw a penalty I know this first hand, And all people make mistakes, I'm not proud of it. But with a energetic, confident lawyer like Ben on your side he will secure you a fantastic and fair result !!!!! To Ben I say thankyou!!!

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.
