Possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS) is often charged as a misdemeanor, but certain aggravating factors can make this charge a felony. If you have been charged with possession of marijuana or a CDS like heroin, methamphetamine, LSD, cocaine or ecstasy, contact a criminal defense law firm.
Possession with Intent to Distribute
If the police say it looks like you intended to sell the drugs that were allegedly in your possession, you could face the much more serious charge of possession with intent to distribute.
Drug possession implies that you are accused of carrying a small amount of a controlled substance. Trafficking implies that you were carrying a much larger quantity. And the potential penalties for drug trafficking in Oklahoma are serious, including long prison sentences.
