Drug Possession Lawyer in Corona

The charges and penalties that law enforcement considers in drug possession cases primarily include these elements:

  • Amount of the drug
  • Classification or Schedule of the drug
  • Purpose for the drugs
  • Prior convictions
  • Use of weapons
  • Involvement of minors

Where large amounts of drugs are found, your situation will be more serious as law enforcement may believe you had possession for sale. Other factors under consideration include scales, individual packaging, large amounts of cash, lack of drug paraphernalia and appearing not to be under the influence of drugs. This data may point to involvement in distribution or trafficking.

Also, if you possessed a Schedule I controlled substance, the charges and penalties will be more severe than if you possessed a Schedule IV substance; certain enhancements to the crime will additionally mean significantly increased legal consequences.
