In fact, drug possession can be one of the most serious charges a person faces under Oklahoma criminal law. Drug possession charges consist of having physical control of one or more illegal narcotics in hand or on the body for personal consumption or distribution. Without a skilled criminal defense attorney at your side, you face long odds in your case.
At M.K. Bailey Law Offices, we defend good people like you who are facing drug possession charges or other drug offenses. Our clients include people from Oklahoma City as well as people who are traveling through the area.
Many people who are traveling don’t think twice about the prescriptions they carry with them. After all, if a licensed doctor wrote the prescription and it was filled legally at the pharmacy, there shouldn’t be a problem, right? Unfortunately, that is not the case.
For example, people who bring medical marijuana to Oklahoma — including people who have valid prescriptions for the drug — can be charged with drug possession.
Marijuana is illegal in Oklahoma, regardless of whether you have a prescription for it.
It doesn’t matter if you are traveling here from California, Colorado, Washington or another state where medical marijuana is legal. Here, you can face criminal charges for possession.
If you are facing charges for possession of marijuana, meth, prescription pills or other drugs, it’s critical to hire an experienced lawyer who can protect your rights.
