Fighting Drug Possession Charges in Pennsylvania

Drug arrest with Handcuffs and Evidence

Pennsylvania law makes it a crime to possess certain controlled substances, including prescription drugs, with limited exceptions. If you have a prescription for a pharmaceutical product, that may be raised as a defense (though it’s not an absolute defense). In addition, if you are a person licensed to dispense prescription drugs or controlled substances, you may also raise that as a defense.

The penalties imposed for illegal drug possession are contingent upon a number of factors, including the type of controlled substance, the amount in possession, and the defendant’s prior record. Typically, the sanctions are less for marijuana possession. A conviction for having less than 30 grams is an ungraded misdemeanor, with a maximum penalty of 30 days in prison and/or fines of as much as $500. With more serious drugs, such as methamphetamines, cocaine and heroin, you can be sentenced to up to 15 years of incarceration and $250,000 in fines.

There are a number of defenses that can be raised to a charge of illegal possession of a controlled substance in Pennsylvania:

  • Lack of intent or knowledge — If you didn’t know you had illegal drugs in your possession, or reasonably believed the controlled substance to be something else, you may be acquitted
  • Insufficient amount of the drug
  • A valid prescription for the drug
  • The drugs did not belong to you, but to a roommate or other person
  • The police violated your constitutional rights with an unlawful search or seizure
  • The police entrapped you
  • You had a valid license to possess or dispense the drug
