Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

As a first offence you will not go to jail if you are only charged with possession.

Here is some information.

Your drug is a schedule 1 drug

Maximum penalty is 25 years but you should not be sentenced to that.

I believe you may get a good behaviour bond and a fine.

But breaching the Good Behaviour bond may result in some jail time.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
