Oceanside Drug Crime Lawyer

Types of Drug Crimes

Drug crimes are criminal offenses that involve narcotics and other controlled substances. These substances include, but are not limited to marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, PCP, and LSD. The California Health & Safety Code outlaws the possession, sale, distribution, trafficking, cultivation, or manufacture of any of these substances. Obtaining, possessing, selling, or distributing prescription drugs using deception can also result in a criminal conviction, since prescription drugs contain dangerous substances, many of which are illegal aside from a valid prescription.

Drug Crime Penalties

Some drug-related offenses are misdemeanors. For example, possession of small amounts of marijuana will result in misdemeanor charges, as will possession of drug paraphernalia. Possession of large amounts of marijuana, or of any amount of cocaine or another narcotic drug, will be charged and convicted as a felony. Most drug crimes result in hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines, as well as a jail or prison sentence. Some cases may involve probation, but a drug crime conviction will still have a harsh impact on the individual's future career.
