Types of Drug Crime Charges

Each conviction carries its own penalties which depend on the specific circumstances of the alleged crime. Regardless of the exact type of crime that you have been charged with, it is advised that you seek legal counsel right away.

Our firm can defend you against the following types of drug crimes:

  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Transportation or sale of a controlled substance
  • Possession of paraphernalia
  • Manufacturing of a controlled substance

Drug charges can be made involving a wide variety of substances, including cocaine, marijuana, heroin, methamphetamines, and party drugs like ecstasy and LSD. Additionally, prescription drugs can be included in drug crime charges if you were allegedly caught with a prescription drug that you did not have a valid prescription for. Even possession of drug paraphernalia such as scales and syringes can result in a criminal charge.

Drug Possession Penalties

In 2017 Oregon passed a law (HB 2355) changing most drug possessions from felonies to misdemeanors. It only applies to very small amounts of drugs: up to a gram for MDMA and heroin, up to 2 grams for cocaine or methamphetamine, and up to 40 doses of oxycodone or LSD. Any amount larger than those is subject to the same felony charge that was around before the new law.

Misdemeanor drug penalties can include:

  • Up to a year incarcerated
  • A fine of up to $6,250
