• Drug Offences: Class C Drugs

    While class C drugs are widely considered to be less harmful to the human body, offences related to these substances are still taken extremely seriously by the courts. Class C drug offences include, but are not limited to, Possession, Possession with Intent to Supply, Importation / Exportation and Production of a Controlled Substance.

    Substances that are classified as class C include:

    • Anabolic Steroids (NB – it is not an offence to possess this for personal use)
    • Benzodiazepines (Diazepam)
    • Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (GHB)
    • Gamma-Butyrolactone (GBL)
    • Piperazines (BZP)
    • Khat

    The penalty for possession is up to 2 years in prison and/or an unlimited fine. The penalty for supply and production is up to 14 years in prison and/or an unlimited fine.
