Drug Defense Lawyers for State or Federal Offenses
A drug crime refers to any criminal activity involving a substance or narcotic deemed illegal by federal or state law. Common drug offenses include:
- Drug possession
- Drug possession with intent to sell
- Drug cultivation
- Drug manufacturing
- Drug distribution
- Drug trafficking
- Drug transportation
- Soliciting drugs to minors
- Selling drugs near a school zone
- Medical marijuana violations
- Prescription drug violations
In California, the majority of drug crimes involve the use of marijuana, cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, crystal meth, Ecstasy, and PCP. However, in some cases, the drug in question is a lawful prescription or over-the-counter medication. When a person uses a lawful drug for unlawful purposes, he or she can still face criminal drug charges. An example of this is when people obtain certain prescription medications, such as OxyContin, Xanax, or Vicodin, to resell them to make a profit. Another example of this includes people who purchase large quantities of over-the-counter cold and allergy medicines, such as Sudafed and Claritin D, to manufacture the ingredients into crystal meth.
