Co-accused? no disclosure?

I was arrested and charged with posseasion of a controlled substance undercover police watched me get in and out of my dealers vehicle whom they had been investigating for some time. He then drove away and I went into the store and police came in and confronted me. My dealer was later arrested after they executed a search warrant at his residence and he was charged with multiple drug related offences including possession for the purpose of trafficking. The court has mentioned me and the co-accused being him so am confused what this means. Will I be faced with the same punishment and penalties for what he has been charged with? I do not have a lawyer yet and the courts will not give me my disclosure despite two appearances which I have asked for more time to retain a lawyer. Any offers of helpful opinions/knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

You should get a lawyer to speak to the crown attorney to know exactly if you are an accused or a prospective witness.
For the fact that you are not yet arrested means that you are not in a serious danger of incarceration.
