Pseudoephedrine: What you should know about possession

In 2006, products containing ephedrine, phenylpropanolamine and pseudoephedrine were restricted on the market.

You can fight drug charges like DUIDs

Drug charges impact your life significantly, and if you're caught driving while drugs are in your bloodstream and affecting your abilities, they may not be the only charges you face. If you drive while under the influence of drugs, you could face a DUI along with other drug charges for possession or transporting drugs.

What does the law consider to be drug paraphernalia?

Drug paraphernalia charges are some of the most complicated, because there are so many things that can be considered both paraphernalia and normal items.

You could have a small spoon for cocaine or heroin or have one to measure with for other purposes.

Facing charges of marijuana? You have a right to a defense

The possession of marijuana is unlawful in Virginia unless it is obtained with a valid prescription. As someone with an injury but no medical marijuana card, it's important that you go through the proper channels to obtain the drug. If you don't, you could face drug charges even though you're using the drug in the same way as other patients.
