No. A minor mistake like that is called a Scrivener’s Error. It’s blamed on the person typing up the paperwork that someone else directed. If it’s pointed out, the case won’t get dismissed; it will just get corrected.

Q: what classifies a drug charge as traffing ,is it the amount or the way the substance is packaged when it's found?
Timothy Carignan
Timothy Carignan
answered on Mar 22, 2024

It can be either. If the amount is more than what people would consider “for personal use,” or if it’s packaged in such a way that it can be easily sold, it will be considered trafficking. Even small amounts can carry the higher charge if behavior implies that you’re planning to sell it.
