Criminal Defense Drug Crimes

Rancho Cucamonga Drug Crimes Attorney

Legal Counsel in Rancho Cucamonga

The state of California separates all drug crimes into two categories - simple possession and possession with the intent to distribute. Within these classifications, the possession of marijuana is handled differently than the possession of other controlled substances. Likewise, drug crimes related to the possession of phencyclidine (PCP) or methamphetamine are also charged differently. Sentencing for a drug crime conviction in Rancho Cucamonga depends on the type of drug, the amount in possession, and the intent for which it was to be used. Possessing the ingredients necessary to manufacture illegal drugs can also be charged as a crime.

Examples of illegal controlled substances include:

  • Amphetamines
  • Cocaine
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • LSD
  • Marijuana or cannabis
  • Morphine
  • Opium
  • Oxycodone
  • Psilocybin

Because there are so many variables related to drug charges in California, it is important to contact a Rancho Cucamonga drug crime lawyer with criminal defense experience. Even a basic conviction for the possession of marijuana can result in a 10-day jail sentence and a $500 fine. The intent to distribute bumps the charge up to a felony and can extend the length of incarceration up to 3 years. Selling or delivering marijuana to a minor under the age of 14 can result in up to 7 years in prison.
