    Recreational Drug Use | Criminal Downside | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors

    Recreational drug use by an individual is the use of a psychoactive drug with the general intention of altering the state of consciousness for pleasure.

    Despite any short-term pleasure that a user may experience from the use of such drugs, there may be long term unanticipated consequences.

    Helen Holder of Kangs Solicitors illustrates some unfortunate and unexpected consequences via three case studies.

    Driving Ban Leading To Job Loss | Kangs Motoring Offence Defence Solicitors

    Sara saw no harm in smoking a few joints of cannabis. If anything, she felt better than she had for a long time. She was never stupid enough to drink drive, but did not realise just how long cannabis would remain in her system.

    But for the faulty brake light, the police officer would not have:

    • pulled her over the next morning,
    • asked for a roadside drugs test,
    • arrested her and kept her in a cell for 5 hours and
    • charged her with drug driving and had her produced before a court.

    But for her ignorance of the effect of drugs, she would not have:

    • been disqualified from driving for 18 months and
    • lost her job.

    Drug Caution Leading To USA Entry Ban | Kangs Immigration Law Solicitors

    If Daniel had not been spotted by club security, nobody would have been any the wiser, but he was.

    The ejection from the club was not something that particularly bothered him, and receiving a police caution seemed like a slap on the wrist, of little consequence.

    In the morning Daniel returned to his job, and normality resumed, until late Summer when taking the family to the USA for a well-earned summer holiday.

    Little did he know that one simple caution for a drugs offence could have led to him being:

    • refused entry to the USA and
    • placed on the next flight home.

    Daniel had not mentioned the nightclub incident to his family. Until now.

    Drug Caution Affecting Medical Career | Kangs Disclosure and Barring Service Solicitors

    With 8 A* at GCSE, 3 A* at A Level, and a first-class degree in medicine, life was looking good for Rachel until she accepted a caution for possessing a tiny amount of cocaine.

    Rachel will never forget the arrest and police caution, not just because of how frightening and embarrassing the experience was, but because on each medical job application she completes, throughout her entire career, she will have to disclose it.

    How Can We Assist? | Kangs Criminal Defence Solicitors

    The Team at Kangs Solicitors has a wealth of experience of dealing with criminal allegations of all nature including the possession, supply and importation of drugs.

    Please follow the links below for an indication of some of our recent work:

    If you are arrested for any offence, it is imperative that you seek legal advice before being interviewed by the police.

    Minor drug offences are often dealt with by way of police caution, and it is tempting to try and get the process over with as quickly as possible.

    In reality, however, despite what you may be told or think, asking for a solicitor does not delay your release from custody.

    In many instances, it speeds up your release, and also means that we can advise on the best long-term options for you.

    We all make mistakes, but often the biggest mistake is not taking legal advice.
