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.
