Well, this is a bit serious. Missouri has some of the toughest drug laws in the country. Drug possession charges are also complex to understand. And most of the times, the drugs were found in possession of those who are already taking them.
Right from the time you are caught with drugs to the time you are released or proven not guilty, keep one thing in mind that you need to be vigilant and very careful about what you say. Depending on the Schedule of Drugs that are found in your possession, the legal statute referenced as Mo. Stat. Ann. 195.017 specifies the drug’s category found in your possession.
Drug Possession Charges can change your life:
The worst thing that can happen is that it will be written in your record. Even if you are a minor or someone who does not even do drugs, found in possession means that you will have to bear the consequences. So, the next time you allow your friend who does drugs or is addicted to any medicinal drugs obtained without a prescription, understand that it can all fall on you too.
And we are not talking about fine or imprisonment here. Instead, there are a lot of other adverse consequences that will stay with you for life. At all costs, you should avoid being charged as a convicted felon, because once you are branded as a felon life itself will become difficult.
