Drug Crimes in Seattle

If You’ve Been Arrested on Drug Charges Our Seattle Drug Attorneys Can Help

drug on tableAny drug crime in Seattle is serious business, and law enforcement agencies on a state and federal level are diligently seeking out people who break these laws. Seattle is renowned for drug trafficking due to the air and seaports, and the 1-5 corridor connecting Canada to Mexico through the United States.

Methamphetamines such as crystal meth are arguably one of the most prevalent drugs in the region, but Seattle authorities will prosecute anyone possessing or dealing any type of drug including prescription drugs. If you’ve been charged with a drug crime, our team of Seattle drug lawyers can help you build an aggressive defense.

Don’t take any chances, because a conviction could do irreparable damage to your future, especially if you are accused of Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act (VUCSA). These drug crimes include manufacturing drugs, cultivating drugs, or possessing drugs. Our Seattle drug attorneys will guide you through this difficult process and explain how the law applies in your case.

One thing is certain; drug crime penalties in Seattle are severe, and the judgments are swift and punishing.

The penalties you face are determined after the court considers a few essential details. The type of drug is important because drugs are classified according to a schedule that determines how dangerous they are. The quantity of drugs is also considered because a large amount would indicate an intention to distribute, and thus incur a more severe penalty. Lastly, your prior criminal record will come into play. If it’s your first Seattle drug offense you might be able to accept a first-time offender waiver, or possibly enter a diversion program. However, if it’s not your first drug offense then you are far more likely to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
