A Little Goes A Long Way
You do not need to be in possession of a truckload of drugs to be charged with drug possession. A charge can stem from any activity where drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, MDMA/molly, heroin or illegally obtained prescription drugs are present. Simply having a controlled substance nearby or under your control can result in possession charges that threaten to throw your life into chaos.
Drug Possession Penalties
Depending on the drug in question and the amount in possession, charges can be misdemeanor or felony in nature. Penalties can range from fines of $1,000 to $10,000 and incarceration up to 30 years in prison.
The collateral consequences of a conviction are long-lasting, most notably a criminal record that will haunt you whenever you undergo a background check for employment, housing or significant purchases. It may be impossible to quantify the amount of damage a conviction can do to your personal reputation and standing in your community.
