Each state in the United States has its own laws regarding the possession of controlled substances. Massachusetts classifies controlled substances on a five-tiered, A through E scale. The Worcester criminal defense lawyers at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can analyze the facts of your situation and help you understand the facts of your case.
Massachusetts law regards each class of controlled substances differently in terms of charges and possession. The possession of a class E or D substance may come with a misdemeanor charge and a small penalty. On the other hand, the possession of a class A substance may be deemed a felony that may incur much harsher charges.
In 2008, voters passed a ballot to allow small amounts of marijuana to become decriminalized, meaning that a person may not be charged for possessing one ounce or less of marijuana. If a person is found to be in possession of a greater amount of marijuana than one ounce, however, he or she will face criminal class D drug possession charges. At Murphy & Rudolf, LLP, our Worcester criminal defense attorneys can answer your questions and explore your options to pursue a favorable outcome.
