In the conditions of constant changes in legislation, especially in the field of criminal law, problems related to drugs are becoming more and more urgent. Articles 307, 308 and 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine determine responsibility for violations related to the circulation and use of narcotic substances. It is important to keep in mind that being charged under these articles can have serious legal consequences.
What are the differences between Art. 307, 308, 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine?
Articles 307, 308 and 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine regulate violations related to drugs, but each of them has its own unique specificity.
- Article 307 provides for responsibility for the illegal circulation of narcotic substances, i.e. their production, storage, transportation, as well as sale. In case of violation of this article, a penalty ranging from a fine to imprisonment may be imposed.
- Article 308 of the Criminal Code provides for responsibility for the illegal use of narcotic substances. This can apply not only to citizens, but also to medical workers who abuse their status. The penalty for this article can also be significant and include a fine, restriction of liberty or even imprisonment.
- Article 309 of the Criminal Code defines responsibility for illegal trafficking of precursors, i.e. substances used for the production of drugs. It can also prosecute those who assist in the production or sale of precursors. The penalty for this article can be serious and include a fine, restriction of liberty or imprisonment.
What are the risks of a false accusation?
The risks of false accusation in cases under Articles 307-309 of the Criminal Code are extremely high. For example, drug use can be caused by a medical prescription, and misinterpretation of events can lead to wrongful accusation.
Another reason for false accusation is that the precursors used in the manufacture of drugs can be included in different products, and a person can be unknowingly accused of violating section 309 without even realizing it.
In life, there may be many more examples of false accusation of a person under Articles 307-309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
