In Pennsylvania, possession of illegal or controlled substances – such as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, and other drugs – is a crime. If you, a friend or a family member has been arrested or are under investigation for any type of drug charges, contacting a criminal defense lawyer is essential in order to avoid the severe penalties that can accompany a drug conviction.
Drug crimes can draw both federal and Pennsylvania charges, and should be taken very seriously. Penalties for drug possession vary widely – depending on the type of drug, how much of it was found in the defendant’s possession, and Pennsylvania’s classification of the drug itself.
Don’t be tempted to avoid the perceived expense of hiring a qualified drug lawyer. A criminal prosecution of a drug crime can have both immediate and long-lasting consequences that can be devastating. No matter what the conviction is based on, the charges are far-reaching. Penalties range from minor probation to lengthy periods in jail and significant monetary fines.
