What Is Drug Possession?

Drug possession occurs when a person is in possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. There are two types of possession: actual and constructive. Actual possession occurs when the substance is in the person's actual control, such as in their pocket or in their hand. Constructive possession occurs when the controlled substance is in a location that the person controls, such as in their home or car.

Drug possession is also a felony or misdemeanor, depending on the type and amount of the controlled substance involved. For example, possessing methamphetamine or heroin is a felony, while possessing marijuana is a misdemeanor. The penalty for a misdemeanor drug possession conviction can include a fine of up to $1,000, up to one year in jail, or both.

  • So Grateful

    “From the moment I contacted Ben for help with a criminal arrest of my son, I was confident he was the attorney I wanted to handle this matter. Not only was he professional, but truly caring and super efficient working with the DA to get the charges dismissed. I highly recommend him-you won’t regret giving him a call.”

    Amy Gresko

  • "Knowledgeable, compassionate and True to his word"

    “I was researching for an attorney online and came across the JacobsLawFirm. After reading the outstanding reviews, I decided that I would give them a call. I was surprised that Mr Jacobs answered his phone at 11PM on a Friday night. He was very helpful and took the time to explain the legal process that we were going through. Many times, he comforted my wife and I while going through a very traumatic event. Throughout all our communications, Ben was very responsive, professional and I would definitely recommend JacobLawFirm to my family and friends if ever needed. Thank you Ben!”

  • Efficient, effective, and professional.

    “I initially hired Me Jacob for a fraud case that I was out on bail for in 2017. I caught 2 more cases and bailed out on them as well. Mr. Jacob fought for me for 4 years roughly and got my sentence reduced from 5 years four months at 80 percent to a 16 month with half and time served paper commitment in March of 2021. He was able to get 2 of my cases dropped and my motions passed. A hard feat to accomplish with my background and in Placer county court system. He didn't have much to work with and still made a miracle happen for me. It may have took some time 2017 to 2021 but he never gave up on me and provided service above and beyond my expectations. You should be so lucky to have him on your side in the courtroom and out.”

    Erik Asleson
