In Your Defense After An Arrest Alleging Drug Crimes

As with all criminal charges, the term "drug crimes" encompasses a wide range of offenses, including:

  • Possession of a small quantity of marijuana for personal use
  • Possession of small amounts of cocaine or other "street drugs"
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Possession of prescription drugs such as painkiller narcotics without a prescription
  • Possession of any controlled substance with intent to sell
  • Distribution of a controlled substance
  • Manufacturing methamphetamines
  • Cultivating marijuana
  • Large-scale drug trafficking
  • Conspiracy to commit any of the above-mentioned offenses

Individual Circumstances Differ But In All Cases A Strong Defense Is Essential

Some people charged with drug crimes have chemical dependency problems and need treatment. Others have been caught up in circumstances involving other people who committed illegal acts: a spouse, a college roommate or a friend driving or riding along in the same car. Some have been targeted in drug busts triggered by plea bargains by offenders who testified against their friends, roommates or family members in exchange for lighter sentences.

Whatever your position and whatever the details of your case, your need for skilled criminal defense is urgent and acute after a drug crime arrest.
