Criminalized Substances In Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania law, along with federal law, criminalizes the possession or trafficking in substances such as:
- MDMA (ecstasy)
- LSD (acid)
You could also face criminal charges for the cultivation or manufacture of these substances. Possession of drug paraphernalia is another type of drug offense.
Our lawyers are familiar with the legal intricacies of each offense, and we can use that knowledge to craft a strong defense for you.
Charged With An Opiate Offense?
It’s a tragic reality that so many people get hooked on painkillers after being prescribed them for medical purposes. Opiates are highly addictive, and individuals end up paying the price for a problem that can only be solved at the systemic level.
If you have been charged with an opiate-related drug offense, you will find a passionate and determined advocate in our firm.
Despite the growing tide of legalizing recreational marijuana across the country, in Pennsylvania, it remains a Schedule 1 drug, which means it is treated the same as heroin and other illicit substances. Our firm can defend you against any marijuana-related offense.
You can also face a DUI charge for driving under the influence of marijuana. These types of charges are much harder to prove since THC (the psychoactive component of marijuana) remains in the bloodstream for much longer than alcohol. Our attorneys know how to use that fact to defend people against weed-related DUI charges.
