Drug Possession and Personal Consumption


Dubai leads the nation for arrests of individuals possessing a controlled substance. A controlled substance is defined as illegal drugs that are classified by the government as being dangerous.  According to the Dubai Department of Corrections, of 16,000 prisoners, 2,000 are in jail or prison due to a drug offense. Drug possession typically goes hand in hand with drug sales. Drugs typically found in possession and/or sold on the street are: cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, synthetic cannabis like Spice and K2, PCP, heroin, LSD, ecstasy, and Tramadol.


Oftentimes, if drugs are found in your possession you may be charged by law enforcement with possession with intent to sell, even if the drugs were for your own personal use.  The differences in the charges that can be brought against you for drug crimes are extreme. Penalties for a drug charge are based on the type and amount of drugs in your possession, intent to sell, or distribute, your past criminal record and the circumstances surrounding your case.

Drug Transporting


In Dubai, the laws against the illegal transportation of drugs (also known as narcotics or controlled substances) are designed to severely punish big time dealers and repeat offenders. Drug transportation is defined as the illegal movement of a controlled substance from one location to another.  This can be via aircraft, motor vehicle, watercraft, train or by any other means.


Punishment of a drug trafficking offense can result in numerous penalties. The penalties vary upon the type and classification of the drug being transported, the geographic location, the amount being transported and any involvement of minors. Drugs coming into Dubai from other countries face the most severe penalties and punishment. Hiring a criminal defence lawyer will drastically increase your chances at keeping your freedom. At The Law Offices of Faisal Alzarooni we will ensure that your rights are protected in Dubai and that you receive superior legal representation for your drug transportation case.


Whether you are a repeat offender or this is your first offense, you can expect to receive very harsh consequences for your actions. The consequences may be a jail or prison sentence, fines and probation to name as few.  Drug transportation often leads to other criminal behavior and violent crimes that often result in homicide.  Therefore, Dubai is very hard on individuals convicted of the transportation of drugs.


In many instances you can also be punished for a drug transportation charge in federal court.
