An important distinction in a drug possession case is whether the possession was for personal use, sale, or intent to sell. Many other factors are used in determining whether to charge the defendant with a felony or a misdemeanor, such as quantity, type of drug, cash on hand at time of arrest, drug paraphernalia and packaging. Additionally, drug crime allegations often carry over into Family and Juvenile Courts and can cause repercussions well beyond the criminal investigation.
