Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act (VUSCA) Charges

Perhaps one of the most serious types of criminal charges a person can face are those for drug crimes. While the general attitude towards many drugs across the United States is shifting, law enforcement and prosecutors come down particularly hard on drug crimes. Even marijuana, which has been legalized in the state of Washington, is regulated and someone can still be accused of a crime. Depending on the type of controlled substance in question, along with its amount and intended purpose, a person could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony.
