    I've been charged with supply of marijuana through a phone conversation recorded in Feb this year. There was no evidence other than this was produced, and also when the raid was executed, I got charged with possession of approx 2 grams. I have a possession charge for a smaller amount approx 2 years ago that is it.

    What penalties can I expect under Queensland criminal law?

    I believe both possession and supply of mj carry a max sentence of 15 years prison each unless supply was to a minor or in educational institution in which case its more. Not sure what the average sentence is taking into account your priors though.

    hi..
    How did they access the conversartion.. e.g. take your phone.. then force you to open it... just take your phone not password protected etc.
