Drug Possession

Drug PossessionAn unfortunate but common crime in Washington State as well as the rest of the country is drug related.  Most drug possession charges are based on Violations of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act (VUCSA).  Even the smallest amounts of methamphetamines (Meth), cocaine, or heroine would be a violation. And even though small quantities of marijuana are technically legal in Washington, larger quantities could also result in a VUCSA charge.

If you are facing a VUCSA charge, be prepared to face serious consequences, such as prison, fines, probation, and court-ordered treatment. If the state is alleging that your drug case involved an intent to deliver, actual delivery, or manufacturing, be prepared to face even stiffer penalties.

The consequences you are facing are dependent on several different variables. For example:

  • What type of drug was involved and its drug schedule classification (such as cocaine, crack, heroin, marijuana, and meth)
  • How much of the drug was involved
  • Whether the possession was for personal usage or was there with intent to sell/distribute
  • Evidence of drugs being sold
  • If you have criminal history (felony offender score)
  • Whether there were weapons involved

If you are facing a drug possession charge, it is important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. It is understandable to be scared about the consequences you are facing. However, there are potential opportunities available to you depending on the facts of your situation.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.
  • ★★★★★
    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
