Anchorage Criminal Defense Lawyer

Have you been arrested and charged with a drug crime in Anchorage, Alaska? You could face serious penalties depending on the type of substance and the amount involved in your case. You also need to retain skillful representation to help you fight these charges as soon as possible. It is fundamental for you to understand that illegal and controlled substances are divided up into five categories called schedules according to their potential for abuse and recognized medical use.

Overview of Various Drug Offenses

Schedule one drugs being the most dangerous with no recognized medical use, and schedule five being the least dangerous with some widely recognized medical use. Another factor into the severity of your situation when facing drug crime charges is the action that was committed. Types of offenses involving illegal or controlled substances include the following:


Simply possessing illegal substances can result in serious charges and harsh penalties. Where the substance is a controlled substance, then you will need to show proof of lawful possession in order to prevent criminal charges.


Sales, gifting, trading, bartering, or drugs otherwise changing hands can result in criminal charges of distribution. You could also face charges for possession with intent to sell when an officer finds evidence of intent to sell such as scales, individual packaging, and other evidence.


The growing, chemical mixing, or otherwise creating illegal or controlled substances is the crime of cultivation. This is a serious offense that can result in extensive penalties depending on the amount you are cultivating.
