Plano Drug Crimes Attorney
What is a "Drug Crime"?
Drug crimes are defined as offenses involving the criminal possession,
sale, distribution, trafficking or manufacturing of a controlled substance.
There are many chemicals and organic substances that are prohibited for
use, sale, manufacturing and distribution, including the following:
- 2C-I "Smiles"
- Ketamine (Special K)
You can also be charged with a drug crime if you are found with certain
prescription medications in your possession. Possession of certain prescription
medication is illegal if the individual has not been issued a valid prescription
for that specific medication. It doesn’t matter if the drug is not
illegal to possess—if you have been caught with certain painkillers,
sedatives, barbiturates, etc., you can still face serious penalties.
