Types of Drug Charges


Drug Possession - having one or more illegal drug in one's possession for personal use, for sale, or for distribution.

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia - frequently charged along with drug possession charges. Drug paraphernalia includes pipes, rolling papers, syringes, spoons, etc. It can also include items that appear to be related to drug activity such as scales, bags, and lighters. Sometimes these items are simply coincidental to the presence of marijuana.

Drug Possession With Intent to Distribute - is usually charged based on overall weight and packaging, as well as any other evidence that may lead law enforcement to believe it is intended to be sold. Items such as baggies, scales, and large sums of cash in close proximity to a large quantity of packaged drugs will look suspicious to the police.

Drug Trafficking  - the crime of buying and selling (trafficking) of  drugs.
