Pittsburgh Drug Possession Lawyer
There is no such thing as a “minor” drug offense charge. In Pennsylvania, all criminal drug charges carry the possibility of serious and potentially lifelong consequences. This is true of misdemeanor drug charges such as simple possession of a controlled substance or drug paraphernalia, as well as felony drug trafficking charges such as delivery or possession with intent to deliver controlled substances. If you have been notified that you are the subject or target of a criminal investigation involving drug trafficking, or have been arrested on any drug-related offense, including possession of any controlled substance, including marijuana or cocaine, you should seek advice from an experienced Pittsburgh drug possession lawyer.
