"Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done."
- Bryan Stevenson
Drug Crime Attorney in San Francisco
Possession, possession with the intent to deal, manufacturing, possession of paraphernalia, delivery, dealing, trafficking… these are all heavily prosecuted drug crimes by the state of California. Depending on the amount of the illegal substance you are caught with, what kind of substance it is, and what the officer believes you are doing or plan to do with it, are all factors in determining the punishment. And if you try to burn/flush/consume/toss the drugs, then that can be counted as destruction of evidence, which carries its own punishment.
Because of the massive number of variables and conditions involved in a drug case, it is imperative that you seek the counsel of a professional who knows the nuances of the law.
