Drug Crime Charges Can Have a Major Impact on Your Life in San Diego

by | Jan 4, 2019 | Drug Crimes

Despite the relaxing of some drugs in California lately, you can still face drug crimes charges in San Diego that could impact your life for years to come.  There are still major fines and penalties in place for possession, manufacturing, transporting, and selling drugs.  While many drug crimes are settled with a plea bargain down to a lesser offense, you cannot take the chance that you will be able to get off lightly if you are caught committing a drug crime.  You will need an experienced drug crime attorney to make sure you are thoroughly protected throughout the legal process.

How the Severity of Drug Crimes Are Determined

Exactly what drug crime you are charged with will depend on what kind of drug is involved, how much of it is involved, and what you were allegedly trying to do with it.  You won’t be charged with the same kind of crime if you are caught in possession of a small quantity of a controlled substance such as marijuana versus attempting to sell or transport several pounds of drugs such as cocaine or opioids.  Also keep in mind, that some drug charges may be filed at a state level, while other more serious crimes could be charged at a federal level, creating a completely separate set of legal challenges.
