Penalties for drug offenses vary depending on your location and the accusations against you, but can be extremely harsh. In addition to fines and fees, there is also a chance you will be forced to serve time in jail or be threatened with the loss of your drivers’ license or other privileges, even as a first time offender.

To ensure your rights are protected and you are treated fairly by law enforcement and the court system, you must find an attorney that can provide support and guidance during this unpredictable time.

Some of the most common drug offenses include:

Drug Possession

You can be charged with drug possession when you are found in possession of an illegal narcotic. “In possession” means on your body, but could also refer to in your vehicle or in your home. It’s even possible to be charge with drug possession when drugs are not your own but are on your property. Laws regarding drug possession vary based on the type and quantity of the drug.

Drug Distribution

You can be charged with drug distribution based on your actions with the drug (law enforcement witnesses you selling the drug or attempts to make an undercover purchase of the drug), but also based on the quantity of drug in your possession.
