Who Is This Service For?

Useful Information

The offences of possession of drugs in Greece - as well as drug trafficking - are regulated by Law 4139/2013, which focuses on dealing with drugs and the rehabilitation of drug users. The legal framework addresses issues related to the possession and trafficking of narcotics and establishes the legal consequences for such offences. Here's a simplified overview:

  1. Drug Possession: Law 4139/2013 differentiates between possession for personal use and possession with intent to distribute. Possession of a small amount of drugs for personal use is treated more leniently than possession with intent to distribute. The law aims to steer individuals towards treatment and rehabilitation rather than imprisonment for personal use cases.
  2. Drug Trafficking: This is considered a much more serious offence and is dealt with more harshly under the law. Trafficking involves the manufacture, transport, and distribution of illegal drugs. Convictions for drug trafficking can result in long prison sentences, reflecting the severity of the crime.
Useful Information


Clients must provide detailed information about their case, including the type and quantity of drugs involved and the arrest circumstances. This information is vital to determining the nature of the charges and the best strategy for creating a robust legal defence.
