"Until August 2005, methamphetamine was listed under Schedule III of the CDSA (Controlled Drug and Substances Act), a Schedule that carries a lower level of maximum penalties for possession, trafficking, production, importing and exporting (from three to seven years). As a result of increased concern about methamphetamine use on individuals and society, the federal Minister of Health moved methamphetamine to Schedule I of the CDSA. Under this Schedule, the maximum penalty for possession is seven years, while life imprisonment could be sought for trafficking, producing, importing/exporting, or possession for the purpose of export."
