Arrested for Selling Drugs in California?
Hire a Ventura drug defense lawyer!
The government highly regulates the sale,
possession, and usage of drugs. In particular, controlled substances are at the forefront
of government regulations. That is because research has shown that these
drugs have the ability to make users highly dependent and likely to abuse
the drugs. Illegal drugs, such as heroin, LSD, or methamphetamine, are
commonly called controlled substances because they are considered to be
addictive. Furthermore, they have no value as a source of medical treatment.
Other controlled substances--such as
prescription drugs with medical use--are also heavily regulated by the government. With the
government taking such a proactive approach to curbing
drug crimes, you could be facing serious penalties for drug sale charges.

Penalties for Drug Sales Charges
Selling illegal drugs is a risky endeavor. Drug crimes carry heavy punishments,
even for first-time offenders. Charges could become more severe if another
crime occurred simultaneously, such as prescription fraud or drug transportation,
or if the sale took place by a school or a church. There are many variables
that factor into the penalties you could be up against. Regardless, drug
crimes can all bring devastating consequences.
The possible penalties for drug sales include the following:
- Community service
- Required drug rehabilitation
- Seizure of property
Being accused of selling to a minor is an especially serious crime and
could enhance the penalties even further. Minors who are suspected of
selling drugs could face incarceration at a juvenile facility. If any
of these situations sound like yours, know that hope is out there! While
being accused of a crime can leave you feeling confused or afraid, a Ventura
drug crime attorney can be your best asset for a brighter future.
