Since July 1, 2015, it has been legal for Oregon adults to possess up to eight ounces of marijuana and to grow up to four marijuana plants in a single household. Small quantities of marijuana (up to one ounce) can be given away, though the unlicensed sale of marijuana remains against the law.
The possession of heroin or LSD is a Class B felony that is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The possession of cocaine or methamphetamine is a Class C felony that can result in up to five years in prison. Both felony types carry fines of up to $100,000.
Arresting officers are held to strict guidelines that must be scrupulously maintained. If your rights were infringed upon while the arrest was executed, some or all of the evidence may be inadmissible. Whatever drug crimes you are facing, it is crucial that you speak to a Portland drug crime lawyer without delay.
We have experience in dealing with cases such as these. Call us at (503) 517-7000 to get started with a free case evaluation.
