Narcotics or Drug Possession

Drug possession charges are very common in state court. The possession (control over) of any scheduled drug without a prescription will qualify you for a felony charge in most jurisdictions. The amount of the drug in your possession will determine how the case is charged and whether the case will be a felony or a misdemeanor. If you have a prescription for the drug, this will be a valid defense to the charge and most likely get the case dismissed.

Felony Possession (amount usually does not matter):

  • Heroine
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Oxycotin
  • Xanax
  • Extasy/ectasy
  • GHB
