Fighting Drug Possession Charges
Enlist the Help of Qualified Criminal Defenders
If you have been charged with drug possession, it is very important that you contact an experienced lawyer as soon as you possibly can. Depending upon the circumstances of your situation, you could be facing extremely serious penalties. Certain drugs carry fewer and less severe penalties than others if you are found to have them in your possession by a law enforcement officer. For example, possession of methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy or other similar drugs will most likely result in a felony charge. Conversely, if you are in possession of a small amount of marijuana, you could face a misdemeanor charge.
With an drug possession conviction on your criminal record, you will face lasting and traumatic consequences. The law can be harsh and unforgiving against drug offenders because prosecutors and law enforcement officers do not want dangerous or controlled substances in circulation among the general public. You might even find yourself in a very difficult situation in which your possession charges are combined with intent to sell charges. This can significantly increase the severity of your sentence, so ensure that you have hard-hitting defense to protect you from the prosecution.
