Drug Crimes Defense Attorney in Sacramento County and Marin County
Recreational marijuana might be legal in California, but that certainly does not mean the law is relaxed regarding the possession of other drugs. California law still sets out harsh criminal charges and penalties for drug offenders, and having a drug-related conviction on your record can impact many aspects of your life for years to come.
If you were arrested for one or more drug offenses, you have the right to defend yourself – and you should do so with the help of an aggressive drug crimes defense lawyer from Mason Law Office.
Drug Charges and Penalties
There are many drug-related charges people can face in California, including:
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Possession with the intent to sell a controlled substance
- Transportation of a controlled substance
- Selling or distributing a controlled substance to a minor
- Selling another substance in lieu of a controlled substance
- Manufacture of a controlled substance
Whether you are accused of simple possession or more serious conduct like manufacture or trafficking, you could face serious penalties. Depending on the charge, you might face a misdemeanor or felony charge, which could mean significant time in prison.
You need a lawyer who will fight against your drug charges to avoid penalties whenever possible. We know how to present defenses, including 4th Amendment violations, in the strongest manner possible to challenge the prosecution.
