Drug Possession and Trafficking Defense
Attorney Joseph Salhab defends clients charged with possession and trafficking of the following controlled substances:
- Methamphetamine (meth)
- Prescription drugs, including Codeine, Oxycontin, Oxycodone, and Xanax
The difference between drug possession and trafficking has nothing to do with intent. Even if an individual was in possession of a small amount of marijuana and intended to sell it, he or she may be charged with possession and not trafficking. It all depends on the amount of the drug involved.
