Drug crimes have serious consequences both in the criminal justice system and on your life. Convictions for drug offenses will land you in prison and severely hamper future employment opportunities. Most common drug offenses include some version of manufacturing, distributing, delivering and possessing a controlled substance. The law on what it means to “possess”, “manufacture”, “deliver” or “distribute” a controlled substance is not as straightforward as you might think. Often people are charged with drug crimes who, under the law, have done none of these things and are therefore not guilty. As your criminal defense lawyer, I would make the state prove all the elements of the drug crime with which you are charged.
