Drug Possession Charges

For individuals who have been accused of possessing drugs, the possible consequences of a conviction can be frightening. While the exact consequences are likely to depend on the amount of controlled substance an individual possessed and how the substance was packaged, most drug possession convictions result in serious fines and may even require jail time. Additionally, some drug possession charges are felony offenses and a conviction will carry with it the personal and professional consequences of being a felon. It is critical that individuals charged with the possession of drugs retain legal representation as early on in the process as possible.

Commonly Prosecuted Drug Possession

The most commonly prosecuted drug possession charges are for the following controlled substances:

  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines

When defending against these charges, it is important to make specific note of the circumstances under which it was discovered that you allegedly possessed a controlled substance. An experienced drug possession lawyer can help you build a strategic defense against these charges, and determine whether the discovery of any controlled substances by authorities was illegal under the circumstances.
