Some common controlled substances include:

  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Barbiturates
  • Altered over-the-counter drugs
  • Illegally prescribed or abused prescription drugs

Drug cases can be very complex, and your attorney must employ a variety of legal strategies to suppress illegal evidence and protect your constitutional rights against illegal search and seizure.
