Drug Offenses

Drug Charges in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Receiving a drug charge can have a devastating effect on your life — and finances.

You run the risk of conviction that can include:

  • Imprisonment
  • High fines
  • Loss of driving privileges
  • Delayed education
  • Career loss
  • Ineligibility or difficulty getting professional licenses or certifications
  • Child custody and visitation issues
  • Ineligibility for housing assistance
  • Immigration issues, including deportation
  • Loss of voting or gun ownership rights for a period of time

PA’s Marijuana Laws

Currently, Pennsylvania residents can use marijuana for medicinal use. Recreational use is, however, still illegal. Only qualified medical cannabis patients may have the drug in their possession.

Our attorneys stay up to date on legislation and can help you navigate confusion surrounding charges associated with:

  • Marijuana DUIs
  • Misuse of medical marijuana

Some PA cities — including Bethlehem, Philadelphia, York, Steelton, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Lancaster — have begun to reduce penalties for simple possession.
