Drug Possession and Trafficking Charges
What is Possession and Trafficking?
Drug possession charges apply to the physical discovery of drugs (also known as controlled substances) on your body, the knowledge of possession on other people or places, as well as in places you occupy – such as a home. If large quantities are discovered or you are found selling drugs, you may also be at risk for trafficking charges.
