Defense For All Drugs Including Marijuana, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Crack
Cocaine, And Heroin
While Marijuana has been legalized in many states across the nation, the
various laws can cause a great deal of legal trouble and confusion. In
many states, medical use of cannabis is permitted, but recreational marijuana
use is illegal. Meanwhile, places like our home state of California have
legalized Marijuana for recreational use. Recreational use, however, does
not mean you can have as much Marijuana as you want or do whatever you
want with it. There are still many strict laws concerning how much Marijuana
you can have, who can sell it, and where you can use it.
Harder drugs like cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine are no longer felonies
in California, but even the penalties and stigma of being convicted of
a misdemeanor can alter your life drastically. Even if fighting the case
does not seem like the best plan, we can help you get a deal that may
protect you from spending time in jail and having a conviction on your record.
Our nationwide drug crimes defense lawyers can help you understand the
drug laws in your state and defend you accordingly. Our firm can also
defend you if you have been charged with other drugs.
What are the Penalties for Drug Crimes?
Drug crimes carry serious penalties at the federal level. Possession of
illegal drugs can result in fines and imprisonment, with the sentence
length often depending on the amount of the drug in question. Distribution
and trafficking of illegal drugs carry even harsher penalties, with the
possibility of life imprisonment for large quantities. Driving under the
influence of drugs (DUI) is also a serious offense, with penalties including
fines, imprisonment, and the revocation of driving privileges. Manufacturing
illegal drugs is a highly punishable offense, as it involves the production
and distribution of controlled substances. Those convicted of drug manufacturing
can face severe fines and lengthy prison sentences, including the possibility
of life imprisonment for large-scale operations.
In addition to criminal penalties, individuals convicted of drug crimes
may also face the consequences such as the loss of professional licenses
and the inability to receive federal financial aid for education.
It is essential to seek the assistance of a skilled lawyer if you have
been charged with any drug-related offense, as the consequences of a conviction
can be severe and long-lasting.
Does Having Drugs In Your System Count As Possession?
You could be charged with a DUI if your body contains
any amount of a controlled substance listed in Schedule I or II or its metabolite
other than marijuana or tetrahydrocannabinol.
Is Buying Drugs The Same As Possession?
Possession is defined as knowingly and intentionally having the controlled
substance without a valid prescription and in quantity substantial enough
for personal use or
sale. Possession with intent to distribute is a more serious charge than possession.
It’s defined as a person selling or offering to sell a controlled
substance. It’s also defined as preparing, shipping, transporting,
delivering, or distributing an illegal drug when an individual knows it
will be sold or resold by someone else.
What Are the Drug Diversion Programs?
California, and many other states, have decided to try and give a second
chance to drug offenders willing to go to rehabilitation. You can do drug
diversion programs to avoid serving time in jail and getting a conviction
on your record. To get into the program, you must agree that if you fail
to complete it, a guilty plea will automatically be entered into your
case, and you will once again be subject to all of the original charges.
To be eligible:
- Your charge can't involve any violence.
- You must not have any more serious charges against you.
- You can't have any felony convictions in the last 5 years.
Things you must do in drug diversion include:
- Substance abuse program
- Probation 12-18 months (with drug testing)
- $100-1000 restitution
- Stable employment or school
