Many various factors need to be taken into consideration after an arrest and charge for a drug crime. Maryland laws regarding drugs and controlled substances can be difficult to understand.

Potential Drug Offense Charges

When you are arrested, there will be a few determining factors that prosecutors will look at as they evaluate their case against you. The amount of drugs you had on you, the type of drug that was found, and the suspected use of the drug will be taken into consideration. All illegal and controlled substances, regardless of the amount, can lead to a criminal charge.

In Maryland, common drug crimes include:

  • Possession
  • Possession with intent to sell
  • Trafficking
  • Doctor shopping or prescription fraud
  • Manufacturing
  • Distribution

It is also important to remember that each drug carries different levels of penalties. Some drug crimes are charged as misdemeanors, while others are considered felonies. After a drug crime arrest, you need to contact an experienced attorney who can help you understand the charges against you, fight for your rights, and defend your future.
