Possessing a Tablet Press or Drug Encapsulator

Possessing a tablet press or drug encapsulator is an offence under section 11B of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985, which carries a maximum penalty of 2 years in prison.

To establish the offence, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that you possessed a tablet press or drug encapsulator.

A tablet press is a device which compresses a substance into pill or tablet form.

A drug encapsulator is a device which creates a shell around a substance to form a capsule.

You are not guilty of the offence if you are able to establish ‘on the balance of probabilities’ that you used or intended to use the device in connection with a lawful activity, or you otherwise had a reasonable excuse for possessing the device.

Duress is a defence to the charge.
