Understanding Washington Drug Laws
Many drug charges are felonies in Washington State, including possession of drugs other than marijuana. Depending on the specifics of the situation, you may face exposure to federal criminal charges.

We defend clients against drug charges that include:
- Possession with intent to deliver
- Manufacture of Marijuana (illegal growing)
- Delivery of a controlled substances
Although many of these crimes are classified as felonies, the penalties for conviction vary depending on the details of the alleged criminal activity, the quantity of drugs, and prior criminal convictions. The consequences of conviction can include prison sentences, fines, and potential administrative consequences.
