Drug Possession Personal Use Walnut Creek CA
Possession of a controlled substance occurs when someone knowingly possesses a controlled substance with the knowledge that what they are possessing is a controlled substance.
This crime can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The difference in charging mostly depends on two things: 1- what type of controlled substance or drug you have; and 2- how much of the substance you have. There are other factors that go into charging as well such as prior record, cooperation with the police, and determination to get treatment.
Thanks to legislation there are many sentencing alternatives available for drug possession crimes, especially for a first time offender.
