Maryland Drug Possession Attorney
Have you been caught with drugs in Maryland?
Under Maryland law, it is illegal for anyone to possess a controlled substance
without a valid prescription, and drug possession charges are some of
the most commonly seen in Maryland courts. While Maryland drug possession
charges are common, they still have the ability to change your life. The
Maryland courts do not necessarily differentiate between different possession
amounts, as other states do, meaning that a seemingly minor charge can
carry serious and life-altering consequences.

What is drug possession & what am I facing?
Drug possession means that you had control over a substance that is illegal
under the law. This can refer to substances that are both in your immediate
possession, or those that are located in a place you have control over,
such as your car.
There are two main types of charges you may be facing for drug possession:
Possession of marijuana: Misdemeanor charges facing penalties of up to one year in jail and a
Felony drug possession: All drugs, besides marijuana, carry four years in prison and $25,000 in fines.
A drug possession conviction can have a lasting impact on your future.
Besides the time behind bars and the fines you will have to pay, you may
find that a criminal record disqualifies you from holding many other jobs.
You must take steps to protect your future and prevent this from happening!
