Possession of Controlled Substance covers many different drug offenses. Sometimes there are prescriptions and sometimes not. Many times the police make an arrest and then let it get sorted out later. Possession of controlled substance can be many substances or nothing at all. Do not jump to conclusions. There are many issues starting with police search. There are illegal searches conducted by law enforcement all the time. Many hasty lawyers do not analyze the cases and miss this. DO NOT be a victim of poor legal representation.
