You have received a criminal charge, now what? –I also act as your capable defence counsel for violations of the Narcotic Substances Act.
The consumption of narcotics (e.g. cannabis, cocaine, heroin, LSD etc.) is not a criminal offence in and of itself.
Punishable offences are all actions before and/or afterwards, such as:
- import and export
- production/ manufacture
Because it is practically impossible to “only” consume a narcotic substance without having had the substance in one’s possession (at least during consumption), merely consuming a narcotic substance does lead to prosecution.
As a defence counsel in Vienna, Lower Austria and Burgenland, in the case of a violation of the Narcotic Substances Act I recommend consenting to a place in therapy.
Consent to a place in therapy is defined as written consent to attend a recognised drug treatment facility, such as the organisation B.A.S.I.S or Grüner Kreis. A commitment of this kind is particularly sensible in the case of clients in custody.
