What is Drug Supply ?
You could be charged with supplying a drug of dependence if you are caught:
1.With a certain quantity of the prohibited drug
2.With preparing (such as dividing the drugs into smaller packages) or 3.manufacturing a drug
4.Selling the drug
5.Buying drugs for a friend.
Schedule 1 of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act sets out the small, traffickable, indictable, commercial and large commercial quantities for each prohibited drug.
Where the amount exceeds the indictable quantity, this matter is strictly indictable which means that it cannot be finalised in the Local Court. Strictly indictable matters usually go to the District Court.
Where the amount does not exceed the indictable quantity, this matter is a Table 1 offence which means that either the DPP or an accused can elect to have the matter dealt with in the District Court. If no election is made it will be dealt with in the Local Court.
Where the amount does not exceed the small quantity, this matter is a Table 2 offence which means that the DPP can elect to have the matter dealt with in the District Court. If no election is made it will be dealt with in the Local Court.
According to the case law of R v Gu  NSWCCA 104, unless truly exceptional circumstances exist there is a clear line of authority that a full-time custodial sentence ought to be imposed wherever the offender has been “substantially involved in supply”.
