3 types of drug crimes charges

Drug crimes are some of the most common crimes that any individual can be accused of, but that doesn't make them any less serious. A drug crime conviction can send someone to prison for a long time if the charges are severe enough. Believe it or not, some individuals are even spending life sentences in prison for nonviolent, drug-related convictions.

Among the list of criminal drug-related activities, here are some of the most common charges that people face:

Drug possession

Drug possession, in its simplest form, is one of the least serious drug offenses to be charged with. The severity of a drug possession charge usually relates to the type and quantity of the drugs involved. As more and more drugs are allegedly possessed by the accused person, other, more serious charges could automatically come into play, such as drug trafficking and drug dealing.

Drug paraphernalia possession

Drug paraphernalia possession is perhaps the least serious drug offense in most cases. This crime relates to the possession of any number of items that police suspect are connected with drugs. Paraphernalia could include pipes, bongs, scales, baggies, syringes and more.

Drug dealing

Drug dealing is more serious than drug and drug paraphernalia possession. It relates to the sales of drugs from one individual to another. This crime is less serious than drug trafficking; nevertheless, those accused of dealing controlled substances must take care to defend themselves against the charges carefully.

Have you been accused of a drug crime? Fortunately, you will not face any punishment related to your charges until, and only if, you are proved to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court. Until this happens, you will remain innocent of the charges and have every right to defend yourself.
