Federal and State Drug Possession laws make it a crime to willfully possess illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, LSD, “club drugs,” and heroin. It is also a criminal act to possess “precursor” chemicals used in drug cultivation and manufacturing, as well as certain accessories related to drug use.
Those facing drug possession charges may have any number of defenses at their disposal. Contact André A. Rouviere to find out what defense his firm can prepare for your case.
Drug possession laws vary according to the drug type and amount. Possession of small quantities may be deemed “simple” possession, while possession of large amounts may result in a charge of presumed “possession with intent to distribute.” Upon conviction, the court will impose a sentence in accordance to Florida state law based on the severity of the case and the convicted individual’s past record.
If you are charged with possession of drugs, either for personal use or with intent to sell, André A. Rouviere can determine which defenses might apply to your case should you plead not guilty. Drug possession defenses can challenge the stated facts, testimony or evidence in the case; others target procedural errors, often search and seizure violations.
