Types of Drug Possession Cases We Handle

Our Portland drug possession lawyer handles a wide range of drug possession cases, including those involving:

  • Marijuana Possession: Oregon has decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use. Adults 21 years or older can possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana in public and up to 8 ounces in their residence. Possession of more than these amounts may result in a misdemeanor or felony charge, depending on the quantity.
  • Cocaine Possession: In Oregon, possession of a controlled substance like cocaine is a misdemeanor if it is 2 to 8 grams. 
  • Heroin Possession: Possession of 1 to 3 grams of heroin is a misdemeanor in Oregon.

Other drugs, such as methamphetamine, ketamine, and GHB, are treated similarly to cocaine and heroin. Possession of less than a certain amount is a misdemeanor offense, and possession of more than a certain amount is a felony offense.
