Defense Strategies in Misdemeanor and Felony Marijuana Possession Cases
The Commonwealth of Virginia is cracking down on marijuana possession charges. In fact, it may be possible to be charged with possession even if the drug is not on your person, which is known as constructive possession. Part of our defense determines whether you were actually in possession of the drug. However, our defense does not end there. These cases involve complex procedural and evidentiary processes that must be followed. Important questions need to be asked and then answered during this process, including:
- Was the chemical analysis done correctly?
- Was the drug on your person or under your control?
- Did you know the nature and character of the substance?
- Was the search and seizure legal?
If you are charged with a drug distribution crime involving marijuana, other elements need to be established before you can be convicted. Each of these elements needs to be examined by an experienced attorney who can advise you of the strengths and weaknesses of the case and provide you with the legal defense that best suits your situation. It can also be helpful to address any underlying issues that may have contributed to the charges. We can help decide if entering rehab or a diversion program makes sense for you.
