St. Louis Drug Possession Attorney
Have you been arrested for possession of an illegal substance?
As some states have taken actions to reduce the potential penalties for
people accused of some drug crimes, the war on drugs in America is still
inflamed. There are many state and federal statutes and regulations governing
the possession and distribution of illegal substances. If you have been
charged with possession of marijuana or another illegal substance, our
St. Louis drug possession
lawyers can help you understand the charges and potential consequences you are
facing if convicted of drug possession.
Why do I need to retain a lawyer for a drug charge?
You can be charged with a drug possession crime when law enforcement claims
that you knowingly had control and ownership over a substance restricted
under state or federal law. Missouri classifies controlled substances
based on their potential for abuse and addiction, and whether or not there
is an accepted medical usage for their effects. The
drug crime attorneys at
Millikan Wright, LLC are familiar with the local laws in St. Louis and how these may affect
the outcome of your case.
Being convicted of possession carries lasting consequences, including:
- $5,000 fine or more
- 7 years or more in jail

- Loss of professional licenses
