However, it is not necessary that the individual should be aware of the exact type of drug, rather only be aware that it’s illegal.
Possession of A Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking
In Canada, it is a contravention of the CDSA (Controlled Drug and Substances Act) that outlines the offences and penalties for violations.

The accused will be charged with ever-increasing penalties and imprisonment period of 1 -2 years.
