Drug Possession

Drug possession is generally described as the willful possession of illegal controlled substances, including marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, LSD, heroin and “club drugs.” The state and federal laws on drug possession also make it illegal to possess chemicals or supplies used in drug cultivation and manufacturing as well as accessories related to using drugs.

The possession of a small amount of drugs may be charged as “simple possession” and possession of larger amounts of drugs may be charged as “possession with intent to distribute.” Drug possession charges depend on drug type, amount and geographic location of the offense.
