Turn to our legal team if you are facing charges for drug offenses.
Drug offenses are a category of criminal offenses related to the possession, manufacturing, distribution, or trafficking of controlled substances. A controlled substance is a drug regulated by the law, such as illegal drugs like heroin and cocaine, as well as prescription medications like amphetamines and opioids.
Depending on the type of drug and the amount involved, drug offenses can range in severity from felonies to misdemeanors. The nature of the offense and your criminal history can also play a role in your case.
The penalties for drug offenses can be severe and include heavy fines, the requirement to spend time in prison, and other consequences. Having a criminal record can also affect future employment opportunities and result in the loss of certain civil rights.
