What is a state or federal drug charge?

In West Virginia, more than just possession or distribution of illegal substances can land you with drug charges. We at the law office of Scott C. Brown wish to highlight the different crimes that are considered part of this category.

First of all, simple possession and trafficking are both crimes that will land you with a drug charge. This means if you are found with an illegal substance or have sold that substance to someone else or helped it pass through the hands of other people, you can end up with a drug charge. Aiding and abetting falls under a similar category; in essence, you can land in some seriously hot water if you try to help or hide someone who is selling drugs.

If you are charged with "possession with intent to distribute", this is generally considered a greater crime than simple possession as it means you supposedly had the intent to sell the illegal substance to someone else. Manufacturing drugs can also land you with a heavy charge, whether it's meth, heroin, or simply growing marijuana. They all hold roughly the same weight in the eyes of the law, which means you could be facing the same harsh penalty if convicted.

If you want to take a closer look at drug charges and their potential repercussions, you can check out our web page through the link provided. By staying well-informed about the different types of drug charges you may face, you can be better prepared to stand up for yourself in court against the charges being made against you.
