All drug charges are serious charges because they are associated with serious penalties. Generally, the penalties for drug possession are the least severe and penalties for drug trafficking are the most severe. The interesting thing to note about all drug charges is that these charges can all lead to social consequences, as well as criminal consequences. In order to attempt to minimize the penalties you face, you must take action right away when you are facing drug charges.
Each drug case requires a bit of investigation to learn about the possible defense strategies that might be appropriate. It is easy for us to tell your side of the case; however, we must go a step beyond that and address the points that the prosecution is planning to raise.
Think about it this way -- if you are facing drug possession charges for marijuana, your defense would be markedly different from that of someone who is being charged with drug trafficking of prescription drugs or heroin. Both of those charges demand a defense, but a person who is accused of trafficking likely couldn't argue that the drugs were going to be used for his or her personal use only.
We must also take the court into consideration when trying to determine a defense. State charges wouldn't need the same defense as federal charges. Being able to address the specific requirements of the court that the case is being heard in is a very important point in your case. We can help you to learn the possibilities that are suitable for your case.
