How Do Drug Cases Get Dismissed?

Yes. If you are a first-time offender on a drug possession, your case can be dismissed. This could also be taken off your record. Your criminal defense lawyer can submit a motion to suppress in the court and ask that any evidence acquired as an outcome of that prohibited search get thrown away.

If you are facing drug charges, don’t hesitate to get legal advice for your case. Call (410) 593-1582 to schedule a free consultation, or contact our team online.

Maryland Drug Laws

Maryland has a number of laws in place regarding possession, distribution, manufacture, and cultivation of controlled substances. This includes illegal drugs and unlawful possession and sale of prescription narcotics. If you are facing criminal charges, it is important to hire an attorney with knowledge of Maryland’s drug laws to ensure that your rights are protected.

Our law firm represents clients charged with:

  • Simple possession of controlled substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or methamphetamines
  • Possession with intent to distribute
  • Hand-to-hand selling of a controlled substance to an undercover cop or informant
  • Illegal possession of prescription drugs

The penalties for conviction of drug crimes vary widely, depending on the specific charge, type of drug, amount, and other factors. For example, the penalty for possession of controlled substances, other than marijuana, can include up to four years in prison and fines of up to $25,000. Drug trafficking can carry penalties of 20-40 years in prison and a $1,000,000 fine.
