According to statistics from the U.S. government, more people are arrested on drug charges in a calendar year than for any other type of crime. Even though most of those arrests are on relatively minor drug charges like possession of marijuana, conviction on drug charges in Maryland carries severe penalties. If you or a loved one faces a drug charge in Maryland, the experienced, knowledgeable drug offense attorneys at DuBoff & Associates, Chartered work to protect your rights.
Drug crimes in Maryland are generally divided into two categories: distribution and possession. The penalties for each can be extremely severe. They include the following:
One reason drug cases are prosecuted so severely is that they often occur alongside other crimes, such as violent crimes, theft crimes and weapons crimes.
Drug possession cases are among the most contentious that any drug offense lawyer can handle. The factors that affect if you are in possession are varied and sometimes vague. Legally, possession of a drug or a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) means having direct or indirect control over it. Sometimes people are charged with possession in very convoluted ways. The factors a court must consider in a possession case include:
All of these questions can easily be disputed by an experienced attorney, especially if there was more than one person present or with a possessory interest in the location where the drug or substance was found. However, because a possession of drugs charge legally can be applied across multiple parties, these claims are not always enough to defeat such a charge.
