The Crown will initially determine whether it can be proven that the amount of drugs in question is likely to result in a conviction for the purpose of trafficking, rather than simple possession. Ultimately that is for a Court to decide if an agreement with the Crown cannot be reached before any Trial. This determination can have huge consequences not only as to any conviction but to sentence as well.

Production or cultivation of marijuana also has seen an increase in penalties in recent years. There are also very severe penalties that are possible for all drug charges, including a prohibition to travel to the United States, should you be convicted of any drug offence. In many cases a criminal record is possible and if convicted of the more serious cases such as trafficking, real jail is also possible for drug convictions today.
