We Can Handle Your Drug Defense in Washington

Our attorneys are backed by decades of proven experience. We know how to combat the serious penalties you could face for a drug conviction in Washington.

What are these drug crime penalties? Penalties for drug possession start at either five years in prison or paying a $10,000 fine, or both. However, the state penalties for illegal distribution of any controlled substance are more severe than they are for simple possession.

Drug distribution is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and/or a $500,000 fine. The defendant may also be punished with restitution, community service, probation, parole, or mandatory drug/alcohol counseling. Greater penalties will be imposed if the defendant was found selling controlled substances to minors. A second and third conviction would obviously come with enhanced penalties as well.

In the state of Washington, it is illegal to possess, distribute, cultivate, or manufacture drugs that include and are not limited to:

  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana*
  • Methamphetamine
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • Crack cocaine
  • Anabolic steroids
  • All street and club drugs
  • LSD
  • Pharmaceutical drugs**

*with exceptions

**Unauthorized prescriptions, that is, such as OxyContin or Vicodin

Facing Marijuana Charges in Washington State?

Marijuana is one of the most commonly used drugs in the state of Washington. In November of 1998, Initiative 692Bag of Marijuana was passed in the state of Washington which allows certain individuals to legally grow or possess cannabis. Even though changes are underway, the possession of more than an ounce of marijuana for personal use is still a crime, and it is illegal to distribute or cultivate without a proper license.
