The objective of Drug Law is to regulate the use and trafficking of drugs. It belongs to the plethora of Special Criminal Laws, that fall under General Criminal Law. Moreover, Drug Law is categorised under Public Law (for further information and explanations on the above terms please visit the «Specialization Fields» tab of our website or the «Introductory explanations on our specialization fields» tab on the «Homepage» of our website) since it fulfills a social purpose by preventing and punishing behaviours with deep social impact, especially considering the criminal acts that usually accompany the involvement with drugs. It is regulated by the Law/Act 4139/2013.
The term itself «Drugs» includes, among others, narcotics, stimulants, hallucinogens, marijuana. All these controlled substances are in the epicenter of the anti-Drug Law which makes a clear distinction among drug addicts, drug users and drug traffickers. So, while a proven drug addict may receive the leniency of the court, an individual charged with drug trafficking faces a penalty of at least 8 years imprisonment and a fine up to 300.000 euros.
