Effective Defense Against All Types Of Drug Offenses In Minnesota

There are many types of drug offenses, according to Minnesota law. A Person can be charged with drug possession, drug sale, manufacturing of drugs, and drug trafficking and distribution. The type of controlled substance found, the quantity of the drug possessed, and the intent behind possession of the drug (i.e. sale or distribution) can determine the exact charge. The different levels of drug crimes include:

  • First-degree drug crimes and second-degree drug crimes
  • Third-degree drug crimes and fourth-degree drug crimes
  • Fifth-degree drug offenses
  • Marijuana crimes

Drug crime charges are almost always felony charges. Even a fifth-degree controlled substances crime, despite being the lowest level and least serious, remains a felony level offense. The penalties can be very strict if convicted. Judith Samson’s goal is to achieve dismissed charges, reduced charges, or acquittal. A fair result is the best result.

  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine and crack cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs
  • Heroin
  • LSD
  • Ecstasy
  • Opium
  • Mushrooms
