What should I do if I was arrested for marijuana possession?
If you were found to be in the possession of marijuana, the first thing you should do is get in touch with a legal representative. You may feel as though it is easier to just plead guilty to the charges, but nothing could be further from the truth. By having an attorney on your side, you could be prevented from saying something incriminating after you were arrested. An attorney could also investigate the aspects of your case in order to find out if you were the victim of an illegal search and seizure.

Are prescription drug offenses different from other drug crimes?
These types of crimes are on the rise in Sacramento. With this said, law enforcement is cracking down on these types of cases. Offenses which fall under this category of crime possessing prescription drugs without a prescription, selling or distributing the drugs, or illegally manufacturing prescription drugs. At our firm, we have seen cases where false accusations have been made against an individual because of a misunderstanding. If you were accused of a crime you did not commit or know you have made a mistake, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team.

What type of penalties could I be facing?
The penalties for drug crimes vary substantially based on the type of drug that was involved as well as the quantity. If the crime involved crossing state lines or country borders, such as drug trafficking, the offense becomes a federal crime. If this is the case, government agencies like the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Federal Bureau of Investigation would become involved. To learn about the specific penalties you could be facing as well as how to avoid them, talk to our firm about your case.
