Don’t let your drug charge blindside you

It’s important that you understand what could happen after a drug possession conviction. Learn what happens when you’re charged with possession of different classes of drugs:

  • If you’re charged with possession of Schedule I, II, III or IV drugs, you will likely be charged with a felony with a four-year maximum prison term.
  • Cocaine and most drugs considered “street drugs” fall under this category.
  • If you’re charged with possession of a “controlled substance analog,” you could face four years in prison and a felony charge. Drugs in this category include synthetic drugs made to resemble scheduled drugs like Vicodin, Oxytocin and Adderall.
  • If you’re charged with possession of a hallucinogen, you could face a misdemeanor charge and one year in jail. Drugs like LSD and hallucinogenic mushrooms are considered hallucinogens.

Getting charged with possession of any of these substances is not the end of the world. An experienced attorney can give you the honest truth about your options and can fight to get you the best outcome, which could turn a felony into a misdemeanor or even keep the charge off your record.
