Aggressive Representation Against Drug Charges
A person can be charged with a fifth-degree controlled substance charge if they sell marijuana or they sell a Schedule IV controlled substance.
A person can be charged with possession of marijuana if the amount possessed is more than 42.5 grams. Any other controlled substances that are in possession can result in a fifth-degree charge if possessed in a small amount.
A person can also be charged with fifth-degree if they have procured the drug through:
- Giving a false credit card
- Using a false name
- Falsely representing a manufacturer, doctor, physician, or another licensed practitioner
There are many factors that go into a fifth-degree controlled substances charge. If the alleged offense is believed to belong in this category, this will be the charge.
