Possession of Substances
When authorities find drugs on you, then an officer may assume that they automatically belong to you and that you are going to use it or even sell it to someone else. The law allows this to happen, but it is important to mention that not all drug possession arrests are done in accordance to the law. An example of this is if your constitutional rights were violated during a search and seizure. For example, evidence could be taken away even before authorities had reason to believe that you have done anything wrong in the first place. If you hire a lawyer that will help you with intensity, then you increase your chances of not being subjected to severe penalties.
Drug possession seems to be the most common type of drug offense that people are faced with. Even though it is common, it can be charged in numerous different ways. You may be faced with a “possession with intent” charge/charge, or you might be faced with a simple possession charge. You could be faced with a misdemeanor or a felony, or you could end up paying a fine or even be sent to prison. As you can see, possession may be considered one of the most common drug offenses, but they are also very complicated cases.
