Risks and Consequences

It’s no surprise that drug dealers do what they do to earn money … so why would they give away money or drugs to you or someone you know when they could save the money and do it themselves?  Probably because the delivery of the drugs is the point at which someone is most likely to be caught … and guess what … if you’re caught, it’s you who gets the criminal record and that has to do the time.  So you take most of the risk while the dealer takes most of the reward – doesn’t sound like a fair deal does it! 

So what are the criminal consequences of getting caught supplying drugs or being caught with more than just ‘personal use’?
