What does poss of cs to-wit meth mean?

About a week ago, I was caught with a very small amount of methamphetamine. I was arrested, detained to a cell, but out on bond until my court hearing. I was told I would be receiving a "Cs to-with meth" charge. I'm not partial to legal terminology and I don't know what that means.

    I'm not sure, but it sounds like you were charged with possession of a controlled substance and they made a note that it was meth. You can call the court clerk and ask what it means.

    That means possession of a controlled substance (cs,) that is to say (to-wit) methamphetamine. It's commonly known as possession of meth, a serious charge. I recommend getting an attorney.

    I think I can translate. CS means controlled substance. "to wit" is a legal term meaning "with." So you are being charged with a felony o f"possession of a controlled substance, with meth as the substance.: I'd start looking for an attorney.

    The phrase "poss of cs to-wit meth" means "possession of a controlled substance, namely or specifically, methamphetamine." In Missouri, possession of any quantifiable amount, even a small amount, of methamphetamine, is a class C felony, punishable up to 7 years in the Missouri Department of Corrections, up to a year in the county jail, or a fine up to $5,000.00, or any combination thereof.
