Drug possession may be considered to be a minor drug crime, but for some controlled substances, and based upon the amount alleged to have been in your possession, it may be charged as a felony. A felony possession offense may be punishable by imprisonment in state prison, along with heavy fines and other penalties. This offense involves having an unlawful controlled substance in one’s possession, whether on one’s property or person.
The type of drug and the amount are the factors that will influence the severity of penalties that the court can impose. If large quantities of drugs are involved or such evidence as large amounts of cash, measuring scales or other evidence that indicates that there was intent to sell, this may mean that the defendant will face drug possession for sale or trafficking charges. As an example, possession of cocaine, heroin or the prescription drugs Vicodin or OxyContin may be charged as a felony and may be punishable by up to 3 years in state prison.
