Columbus Drug Crimes Defense Attorneys
In Ohio, drug possession is defined as the possession of illegal drugs for personal use, distribution, or sale. Drug possession also refers to the possession of controlled substances such as prescription medications. It can also include the possession of compounds or mixtures that are often used to make or manufacture illegal drugs. The possession or use of prescribed medication without a prescription is equally serious.
Intent to Sell or Distribute
If the drug possession charges being brought against you include a charge of intent to sell or distribute, your punishment could be even more serious than they would be for simple possession. The distinction of “intent to distribute” is generally determined by the amount of the drug found in your possession, and the understood rate at which a person could use that drug alone. Drug dealing is an extremely serious crime.
