My legal matter concerning an application for a Domestic Violence Order was managed by Mr Thomas Allen. I am grateful for the outcome he obtained. Without Mr Allen and his ongoing support, I would be certain of a different result. It has been an extremely stressful period. Mr Allen’s astute ability to liaise on my behalf and his expertise was invaluable and for which I am grateful as I am now able to move forward. Thanking you
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Armstrong Legal and specifically Mr Thomas Allen for representing me in my recent case. At the outset, I would like to thank Mr Allen for the very professional delivery of his legal service. From the first time that I met Mr Allen, I was very impressed with his demeanour and delivery as he made me feel at ease knowing the severity of my case. Mr Allen not only gave me the possible positive outcomes of the case but also the realisation of the worst-case scenario as far as sentencing goes. … I will certainly be recommending Armstrong Legal to any of my friends or family needing representation in criminal matters. Thank you so very much.
Thank you for your representation and help. Fingers crossed for the next step and parole. I just want to say that from the first phone call to your office, your service has been outstanding and have put my mind at ease. I am glad I picked your number to ring.
Thank you Armstrong Legal, the lawyers that have helped over the past 3 years but more importantly, thank you to Thomas Allen for the major part you and Mr Buckland played. Cannot thank you enough. Cheers.

Throughout Angela has been the consummate professional. She maintained a calm, yet strong demeanour remained informative and completely open in her communication and took complete ownership of the situation. We felt confident we finally had an advocate to steer us out of the nightmare we were in, and she did so with great respect and sincerity. I cannot speak more highly of Angela. She has literally rescued our family from what looked very much like a hopeless future.
Words can’t describe how grateful I am to Trudie Cameron being my solicitor and to Andrew Tiedt presenting my case in the court. They both have been very supportive and amazingly professional and effective. I’ve got an absolutely fantastic outcome I couldn’t even dream about.
Soon after meeting Andrew I knew he was the solicitor I wanted to handle my matter. He immediately sprang into action which brought me stability and hope during a tumultuous time in my life. Andrew was never afraid to give me straight answers to my tough questions which is a true mark of integrity. He is clearly at ease in the court environment and I believe his calm and measured demeanour went a long way to helping me secure the best result from my day in court. I would certainly recommend you approach Andrew if you need assistance.
"Andrew Tiedt was very professional and considerate to personal circumstances and gave sound advice that resulted in the best outcome possible. Highly recommended."
Drug Misuse Regulation (Qld)
The Queensland Drug Misuse Regulation 1987 outlines how the Drugs Misuse Act 1986 is to be administered. It contains information about controlled substances, prescribed drug disposal procedures, the certification of industrial cannabis, and the powers and responsibilities of inspectors and analysts. This article summarises the provisions of the Regulation.
Drug disposal procedures
Under the Regulation, hypodermic syringes must be disposed of by placing them in a puncture-resistant wall container that is securely closed so that its contents cannot cause injury, or by giving them to a medical practitioner, pharmacist or another authorised person.
The Regulation prescribes that dangerous drugs must be disposed of by giving them to an inspector appointed under the Health Act 1937.
Controlled substances in the Drug Misuse Regulation
Part 3 of the Regulation sets out processes that must be followed in transactions involving controlled substances, such as ephedrine, which are supplied to pharmaceutical companies to produce medication.
This Part of the Regulation requires a person dealing with controlled substances to verify the identity of the person to whom they are supplying the controlled substance, as well as the quantity being supplied and the purpose for which it is supplied. The supplier must provide an invoice setting out the details of the substance that was bought and the name and address of the buyer.
Penalties apply for failure to comply with the provisions of this Part.
Commercial production of industrial cannabis
Part 4 of the Regulation deals with how medicinal cannabis is to be certified, supplied and possessed for the purposes of providing it to persons who are authorised to obtain it.
The Regulation provide that cannabis seed that originated in Queensland must be certified as stated in the Industrial Cannabis THC Seed Certification Code of Practice. Cannabis seed originating in other states or other countries must be packaged with documentation attached certifying that the seeds if grown will produce plants with a THC concentration of no more than 0.5%.
Inspectors under the Drug Misuse Regulation
Under the Regulation, inspectors are authorised to supply cannabis plants to analysts for testing and to supply the cannabis to people who are authorised to possess it.
Analysts under the Drug Misuse Regulation
The Regulation specifies that where an analyst is engaged to analyse a substance and determine its THC concentration, that this must be done in a laboratory accredited by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA). The analyst must keep the THC material in a securely locked bag except when they are testing it.
The Regulation also sets out the responsibilities of licensees who are authorised to produce class A research cannabis. Such a person must grow the cannabis in a glasshouse that can be securely locked and keep it locked except when tending to the cannabis. A licensee must grow the cannabis in an area that is clearly fenced and must put up signs if directed to do so by the chief executive. They must keep the cannabis seed in a securely locked place except when using it for a licensed purpose.
They must keep a register of the strains and varieties of cannabis that they are growing and that are in their possession. They must keep records of the source and quantity of the cannabis delivered to them, when it was received, who delivered it and who it was intended for.
If a licensee receives a cannabis package that appears to have been tampered with, they must inform the inspector or the police. A licensee must allow the destruction of cannabis plants that are found to have a concentration of THC of more than a prescribed level in their leaves.
