What is drug defense law?
Drug defense laws prohibit the possession, manufacturing, and sale of certain controlled substances. State-level arrests for simple possession without intent to distribute are usually charged as misdemeanors and involve probation, minimal jail time, or a small fine. Criminal history and the age of the person being charged are considered potential defenses.
