Nevada Drug Possession Defense Attorneys

Drug possession laws are especially harsh for those under the age of 21. A person found in possession of any amount of marijuana can be charged with a felony, punishable by one to four years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

Possession of other drugs such as cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy and meth carries harsher penalties. Depending on the quantity of drugs in question, a person charged with possession may also be charged with intent to distribute. Whatever drug charges you face, our experienced defense lawyers are prepared to stand up for your rights.

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

A person found in possession of certain items associated with drug use may also be charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. Such items include hypodermic needles, balance scales and pipes. To prove guilt, the prosecution must prove that the defendant was in possession of drug paraphernalia and that the item was being used for illegal drug activity.
