Constructive Drug Possession VS. Actual Drug Possession
The State is obligated to prove Drug Possession charges. That means the drugs were physically on your person and you had knowledge the drugs were there. Constructive Drug Possession charges are taken out if the State thinks they can prove you had control of the drugs but they were not on your person (i.e. in your car or home). Drug Possession charges are complicated but our Drug Possession lawyers at LAWSMITH, The Law Offices of J. Scott Smith, PLLC are very experienced in handling drug cases of all kinds in Greensboro.
