In Victoria, drug offences can be tried and punished under either state drug laws, or federal drug laws.
In the case of trafficking (which can include possession for sale), the particular charge will depend on the type of drug, and whether it is a simple trafficking charge, or trafficking in a commercial quantity or large commercial quantity. The laws are complicated, and it is important to get specialist criminal lawyers involved.
