Drug possession convictions can lead to serious penalties

All across the state of Virginia, many people have been arrested for possession of an illegal substance. Both Federal and state laws make it illegal to willfully possess a variety of substances including marijuana, cocaine, LSD, methamphetamine and heroin. Drug manufacturing and distribution can carry strict penalties, and the consequences of drug possession are no laughing matter either.

What penalties might flow from a Virginia drug charge?

Virginia residents facing drug charges may be concerned with what penalties they could face if they are found guilty. Being aware of the consequences may help those facing charges choose how to defend themselves. With the proper defense, Virginians accused of drug crimes have a chance to lessen their penalties or have their charges dropped.

When a Virginia resident is facing drug charges, they may feel like they are sure to be found guilty and face years in prison. However, this is not always the case. Many drug cases result in the dismissal of charges, leaving the accused to resume their normal lives. With the right representation, those facing drug charges may be able to avoid the serious consequences that come with a conviction.

Being convicted of drug charges can greatly affect your future


Criminal charges involving drug possession or drug distribution can result in life-changing consequences. In many cases, police find illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia directly on a person. In other cases, police may find drugs in a vehicle or dwelling. These drugs can include heroin, cocaine, marijuana and even illegally obtained prescription drugs.

Drug possession crimes can have serious consequences

All across the United States, drug crime has unfortunately become a big part of our society. Drug possession in particular seems to be one of the more common problems. Federal laws and Virginia state laws prohibit the willful possession of illegal controlled substances as well as the precursor chemicals used in the drug manufacturing process. Drug possession laws also prohibit the possession of paraphernalia such as syringes or crack pipes. The Federal Drug Paraphernalia Statute bases whether something is considered drug paraphernalia on primary use.

When it comes to criminal allegations, some crimes carry harsher penalties than others. Drug manufacturing, drug possession and drug distribution charges can all lead to serious consequences, especially for young people with their whole lives ahead of them.
