Possession of cocaine in any usable amount is punishable as a felony. Possession of methamphetamine or Ecstasy is a “wobbler” and may be punished as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The sentence that you are likely to face for possession of cocaine, methamphetamine or Ecstasy depends on whether the drugs were packaged for sale or for personal use, as well as the amount of drugs found.
If you have been charged with possession of cocaine or Ecstasy – whether due to police misunderstanding, a one-time mistake, or the mistake of an acquaintance – you deserve intelligent and aggressive defense. Ahmed & Sukaram, Attorneys at Law, has offices in Redwood City and Oakland and defends individuals accused of cocaine and Ecstasy possession across the Bay Area. We like defending drug cases because oftentimes we can challenge the police officers’ search and seizure of our clients and argue for the exclusion of the drug evidence based on an unconstitutional search or seizure.
