Drug Possession

There are a number of drug crimes that you can be charged with in the state of California. Health & Safety Code 11350 prohibits possession of illegal drugs or even prescription drugs if you do not have a prescription for them. Conviction of drug possession is a felony punishable by as many as three years in prison.

Possession for Sale

Possession for sale is considered a more serious offense under Health & Safety Code 11351, and possession of drug paraphernalia - such as pipes, bongs, hypodermic needles, and cocaine freebase kits - is a separate misdemeanor charge (Health & Safety Code 11364).

Drug Sales, Manfufacturing & Transportation

Possession charges are not the only charges you can face, however; other laws prohibit the sale or transportation of a controlled substance (Health & Safety Code 11352) and the manufacturing of drugs and narcotics (Health & Safety Code 11379.6). Manufacturing charges have the most serious penalties attached, including as many as seven years in a California state prison.

DUI of Drugs

Being under the influence of a controlled substance is another separate charge in violation of Health & Safety Code 11550 and has a mandatory minimum sentence of 90 days in jail.

There is no reason to face a drug crime charge alone. These offenses carry serious penalties. You need a Murrieta drug crime attorney who can stand by your side and fight for your rights in court. A skilled lawyer may be able to prove that the arresting officer seized evidence unlawfully because he did not have a search warrant or that his warrant didn't include the area where the evidence was seized.

It is imperative that police officers observe the laws regarding search and seizure in the state of California. If this didn't happen, you have legal defense options available to you. There are a number of other ways that a knowledgeable lawyer can help you defend yourself against the harsh penalties of a drug crime conviction.
