Criminal charges involving drug use, possession, delivery, and manufacture all depend on the type of drug, the amount, and the locality in which a defendant was charged. Types of drugs are classified by the law according to their medical use and potential for dependence and abuse, known as “scheduling,” which is based on the federal Controlled Substances Act. In addition, cities may have different laws concerning possession charges. For example, some cities have decriminalized marijuana possession while others still pursue marijuana possession offenders.
Drug charges can lead to jail, probation, fines, driver’s license restrictions, treatment, and educational classes. There are several sentencing options available to keep drug charges off your record. Set up an appointment to see how we can help fight these charges.
