Drug possession (including possession of marijuana, cocaine, or heroin) is the first charge applied when an individual is arrested and drugs are found. From this point, the authorities may determine whether there was intent to distribute the drugs based on the amount found. Our lawyers, Howard Bailey and Michael Orozco, take an aggressive approach to drug crime defense. In a case where the state charges our client with intent to distribute, our attorneys will call into question the state’s assumption that drug possession without possession of the paraphernalia to use the drugs implies the intent to sell.
