Drug Possession Charges in Santa Clarita
Drug possession charges may be a serious legal problem, based upon the type of the drug and the quantity alleged to have been in your possession. Although possession of a minor amount of marijuana has been decriminalized, state law heavily punishes the possession of larger amounts, particularly certain types of drugs.
Once you are accused of being in possession of a drug in a quantity beyond the threshold for personal possession, you will be facing felony charges. Drug crimes are heavily punished under state law. The penalties imposed by the court could include jail or prison time, fines and a permanent felony criminal record. Don't make the mistake of assuming drug possession is not a serious crime in California.
