Pseudoephedrine: What you should know about possession

In 2006, products containing ephedrine, phenylpropanolamine and pseudoephedrine were restricted on the market. The Combat Methamphetamine Epidemic Act of 2005 bans the sale of any over-the-counter cold medicines that contain pseudoephedrine. If you want to purchase this drug, it's required that you speak with a pharmacist who then has to release it from behind the counter.

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. For example, you could smoke marijuana with a bong but also have one for display purposes or to smoke tobacco. 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.

Virginia's heroin laws are strict and deliberate: Defend yourself

It has always been clear that heroin is illegal in the United States. While not all opiates are illegal, most require a prescription at minimum, and some are not ever allowed to be used. Getting caught with opiates without a prescription or getting caught with an illicit drug quickly leads to serious allegations and charges.

News names individuals indicted in alleged drug trafficking case

If you get caught as a part of a drug bust, you could face charges even if you're not actually selling, using or manufacturing drugs. For this reason, it's important to call your attorney as soon as possible after you're arrested, so you can protect your reputation right away. This case is a good example of how being indicted can affect you, since each of the people have been named in the news.

3 elements of a traffic stop to scrutinize after a drug arrest

Many drug-related charges stem from traffic stops. A traffic stop gives police the opportunity to speak with people, gauge their physical responses and take a look inside a vehicle while someone is caught off guard, which police can take advantage of.
