Types of Tennessee Drug Charges We Handle
The state of Tennessee has multiple types of drug charges with varying degrees of penalties. Here’s a quick breakdown of the various types of drug charges you may face:
- Simple possession – This is the lowest drug offense in Tennessee. But even this misdemeanor charge can mean fines and up to a year of jail time.
- Possession with intent – Possession of drugs in larger quantities is viewed by the state of Tennessee as having the intent to distribute the drug. This charge carries heavier penalties.
- Sale of a controlled substance – In these cases, typically an undercover law enforcement officer is involved in the sale. This is a felony, but the penalties vary by type of drug and amount.
