Drug Offenses

The only drug offense that is not a felony in Minnesota is possession of a small amount of marijuana (under 42.5 grams). Otherwise, if you possess a controlled substance without a valid prescription, you’re in violation of Minnesota’s drug laws. Whether it is methamphetamine, cocaine, http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/cocaine/, oxycodone, or any other controlled substance defined under the statute, the level of offense with which your charged, and therefore the potential consequence, depends on what quantity of the drug you possessed, whether or not there was an intention to sell it, whether there was a gun involved, and any prior drug offenses. If you have been accused of a drug crime, call Catherine today and she will review your rights, potential challenges and/or defenses, consequences and your options.
