Drug Sales v. Simple Drug Possession
Simple Possession of Drug charges can easily be amended to become a “Sales” case. The difference between a simple possession and a sales case can be based on quantity, the presence or absence of smoking devices and the statements of the suspect. For example, a drug sales case can be “argued” down to a simple possession case if the attorney can effectively argue that the illegal drug was for personal use. Often times drug users may buy larger quantities of their drug of choice in order to achieve a lower overall price. This argument applies equally to cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana. If you or a loved one is charged with drug sales, then you need to contact Attorney Cook today for aggressive representation in criminal court.
