A Strong Defense Against Drug Crimes
Several states have begun relaxing on the possession and use of marijuana, leading to a change of opinion in the eyes of many people across the nation. Despite this, marijuana is still illegal here in Kentucky, even if you purchased it legally elsewhere. This means that you can still find yourself in trouble for this or other drugs here, and you need to defend yourself from these charges.
At The Law Office of Marvin Knorr & Associates, we have been serving the members of the Covington community for years to protect their rights, futures and freedoms. If you or your child need exceptional representation to defend against drug charges, you cannot afford to wait another day to speak with me. The sooner our attorneys can begin defending your case, the better the outcome can be.
Know What You Are Up Against
The consequences of drug charges are based on what schedule, or category, they are in. These schedules are created by the federal government, and consist of five tiers for drugs:
- Schedule 1: LSD, ecstasy, mushrooms, heroin and marijuana
- Schedule 2: Meth, oxycodone, Vicodin, Adderall, Ritalin and cocaine
- Schedule 3: Tylenol with codeine, ketamine, testosterone, anabolic steroids
- Schedule 4: Xanax, Valium, Ambien, Darvocet, Soma
- Schedule 5: Robitussin Ac, Lomotil, Motofen, Parepectolin, Lyrica
The higher up the list your drug is, the worse the consequences can be. Most people are surprised to see that marijuana is higher on the list than meth or cocaine and are even more surprised to learn that the consequences of a conviction are as severe as they are.
Our Attorneys Can Help Protect You
There are many forms of drug charges, such as possession, manufacturing (creating or growing drugs), distribution (selling drugs or showing the intent to sell, like having a large amount of marijuana) and driving under the influence of marijuana or other drugs. Law enforcement will commonly try to go for the most severe conviction and tell you things like getting an attorney only makes you look more guilty.
