R. vs. K.L. and M.B. – Jasper Provincial Court

Charge: Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking (suspected MDMA).
Issue: Whether, given the circumstances, the drugs were possessed for the purpose of trafficking.
Result: The drugs analyzed showing only a trace amount of a controlled substance. Mr. Mines persuaded Crown that the other evidence fell short of proving an intent to traffick. The Crown withdrew the PPT charges and agreed to resolve the matter with a plea to a single count of simple possession of marijuana. The court imposed a $200 fine.
