Mounting A Strong Defense Against Drug Possession Charges

The use of illegal drugs and narcotics is dangerous business, which is why there are strict federal and state drug possession laws on the books. Depending on the amount of drugs possessed upon arrest, charges could be "simple possession" for smaller amounts or "possession with the intent to distribute" for larger amounts. Legal repercussions and punishments may vary greatly depending upon the type of charges filed, drug type, and area where the crime occurred. If you or a loved one has been involved in a drug possession arrest, it is in your best interest to quickly procure the legal counsel and services of a Lancaster criminal defense lawyer.

Being found to be in simple possession of marijuana is generally a misdemeanor in California punishable by a small fine. More serious charges can be filed for possession of cocaine, LSD, methamphetamine, heroin, unlawfully obtained prescription drugs, and other narcotics. You can also be charged for possession of materials used to manufacture or cultivate drugs and for paraphernalia used to consume them. If convicted for the possession of a controlled substance in California, you could face up to 3 years in prison. Fortunately, there are diversion programs and rehabilitation options available to many first-time offenders that can help keep them out of jail if convicted and get them the medical treatment they need.
