Drugs Crimes Center
In California no one is allowed to possess any controlled substance like a narcotic drug, hallucinogen or a stimulant, as defined by the California Codes, unless it is prescribed by licensed physician. Drugs like Cocaine, Heroine, Methamphetamines, Crack, and even Marijuana (except pursuant to California Health & Safety Code §11362.7 et al.), as well as others, are strictly forbidden. Likewise, prescription drugs like Vicodin and Oxycodone, are also not allowed unless the person in possession also has a valid prescription from a medical doctor. Most drug offenses in the State of California are now felonies.
Likewise, no one is allowed to possess for sale any controlled substance like a narcotic drug, hallucinogen or a stimulant, as defined by the California Codes. Whether the possession is for sale or for personal use is determined by looking at many factors, such as the amount of the substance, the way it was packaged, whether any scales, pay/owe sheets, ledgers, notes, or communication devises were also found and are associated with the controlled substance. If a person is found to be carrying or driving with these substances, he or she may be charged with transportation or trafficking of a controlled substance.

EARLY INTERVENTION BY COUNSEL IS KEY TO A PROPER DEFENSE
It is extremely important to have an experienced and knowledgeable federal and state criminal defense attorney begin working on your case as early as possible. Critical issues, such as how your particular case will be filed and what charges will be leveled against you, are decided, many a time, very soon after your arrest or during the investigatory period. Whether your case goes in front of the grand jury or not, early intervention gives us an opportunity to potentially reduce or dismiss the charges against you before the first court date.
Over the years, our federal and state criminal defense lawyers have successfully represented numerous clients charged with drug crimes as described above. We have observed that the longer one postpones in hiring a criminal defense lawyer, the greater the problem may become.
