Clarksville Drug Crime Attorneys

What Constitutes a Drug Crime in Tennessee?

In Tennessee, the type of drug in question does not have much impact on the sentencing. Whether the Schedule 1 substance you have is marijuana or heroin, being caught in possession will have more to do with the quantity in question and your intentions than how “dangerous” the substance seems to be.

Crimes beyond possession can be charged as felonies, such as:

  • Possession with intent to sell or distribute
  • Manufacturing of a controlled substance
  • Trafficking
  • Selling a controlled substance

While marijuana is rapidly making its way into legality across the country, it still is not legal in Tennessee. If you are caught possessing marijuana, you can be charged with a misdemeanor and slapped with a criminal record that can hurt your chances at finding employment, housing, and financial opportunities. Even with minor charges, having the help of a qualified legal professional on your side is important.

Laws against drug use can be severe in the state of Tennessee. As any crime that is not simply possession can be charged as a felony, having the help of experienced Clarksville drug crime attorneys on your side can give you an advantage if you have been accused of one.
