About Matthew Kazandji
While I was starting my law practice, my motive was to defend the individuals who are charged in serious matters for instance attacks, murder sexual attack, drug trafficking or any other kind of assault. As my practice initiated, I’ve defended several cases at different stages in the Ontario court. My ultimate goal is that every individual who is charged with any criminal accusation deserves to get a chance to prove himself not guilty of the crime. For that purpose, I navigate them, and they should have a lawyer who will explain in their favor. I am a member of several boards like the Ontario Bar Association, Toronto Lawyers Association, and the Criminal Lawyers Association. I often appear in different courts of the country, such as Milton, Brampton, Oshawa Toronto, etc. to defend the rights of individuals. I like to spend my idle time playing different sports such as kite surfing and snowboarding and working out to stay healthy.

Alcohol and tobacco are the most widely used psychoactive drugs in Canada. these two cause by far the greatest number of harms and costs to the population. The most widely used illicit drug is marijuana which causes relatively few harms for its level of use. most of the direct harms from licit and illicit drugs , occur in high-risk populations such as : Injectors Street youth The inner- city poor Natives There are many kind of drugs , such as : Alcohol Tobacco Licit Dygs Illicit Drugs Drug use percentage According to the Canadian Alcohol and Other Drug Survey , 72% of women and men aged 15 years and older (about 16.5 million Canadians) report drinking alcohol in the past 12 months.

Young adults, males and those with higher incomes drink more than other Canadians. 27% of Canadians aged 15 and over reported current smoking in the 1994 survey. 58.6% of smokers smoke between 11 and 25 cigarettes daily. 7.3% smoke more than 25 cigarettes daily. Younger age groups report the highest levels of current smoking : 18 – 19. 29%, 20 – 24. 37% As you know , it is not possible to deal with legal and illegal drugs in a totally separate manner. The drug reporting systems and the harms to individuals and society make such a separation unrealistic. For example, physicians merge the diagnostic classifications for licit and illicit drugs side effects.
