Los Angeles Possession Lawyer

Powerful Defense Against Drug Charges

Possessing an illegal or controlled substance is a crime in the state of California and carries stiff penalties. These drugs can be many different types, and can include such things as marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, LSD, any of the various “club drugs” or even prescription drugs that were procured illegally. The exact penalties that you would face should you be convicted will vary depending on the type of drug found to be in your possession, the exact amount found, and the vicinity you are found with it.

Drug Possession Penalties In California

When faced with drug possession charges, obtaining the dedicated representation of an experienced Los Angeles drug defense attorney is key if you wish to avoid a number of legal penalties. The penalties for possession of a controlled substance or narcotic depend on two factors: the quantity of drugs in question, and the type of drug in question.

For example, possessing less than 1 oz of marijuana is a misdemeanor, punishable by a $100 fine, whereas possessing any amount of cocaine is an immediate felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison. Even marijuana can bring about felony charges when you have a large quantity of the drug in your possession.

In addition to imprisonment, a conviction for drug possession can result in thousands of dollars in fines, probation, mandatory drug treatment, community service, and mark on your permanent record.
