    What kind of trouble would I be in if caught purchasing and receiving drugs online from within my own state? eg. I order 5 ecstasy pills from an online vendor that sends parcel from within my address state..? I'm obviously not importing across borders so what kind of charges under Criminal Law would I be looking at if caught..?

    Postman,

    Each state has different thresholds when it comes to determining personal supply v trafficable supply.
    In Victoria, if you are found with more than 3 ecstasy tablets - it is classed as a trafficable offence which will mean higher penalties.

    The maximum penalty is up to 15 years jail and/or a fine up to 1800 penalty units.
