The Legal Definition of Drug Possession

Both state and federal laws define drug possession as being in possession of an illegal controlled substance. When a person is arrested for drug possession there are two possible charges.

  1. Simple possession – the drugs are for personal use, either medical or recreational
  2. Possession with intent to sell – the drugs are for sale or distribution and there is other evidence such as large quantities of the drug, large amounts of cash, digital scales, or small plastic bags

The laws state that a person arrested for drug possession must knowingly be in possession of the controlled substance and has the ability to control it. This means that the person must know that 1) s/he was carrying the drug and that 2) s/he knew the drug was illegal.

State and federal laws define drug possession as more than just the drugs themselves. The definition of drug possession also includes possession of drug paraphernalia such as bongs, crack pipes, syringes and related items. It’s also a crime to possess the chemicals used to manufacture illicit drugs. -More-
