Possession of Drugs or Drugs paraphernalia is the most common reason for daily arrests in the state of California. The charge has many variations, and it carries different bail amounts and punishments. Here at Sunrise Bail, we understand the nature of those variations, and we will explain them very simply so you can make the right decision when bailing someone out of jail.
People can be arrested for associating them with controlling substances under many different charges and penal codes. A person doesn’t have to necessarily need to be under the influence to be arrested. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time can result in someone’s arrest. Following, are different scenarios and reasons why a person will be arrested with relation to drugs:
Possession of drugs for personal use, which may vary by the type of drug.
Possession of drugs paraphernalia, such as, pipes, syringes, scales and specific containers.
Possession of drugs for purpose of sales (large quantities or quantity divided into smaller portions found in one place).
Possession of drugs for purpose of transporting (usually when drug is hidden in a vehicle or a vessel).
Possession of prescription drugs without prescription.
Possession of someone else’s prescription drugs.
Selling drugs to others while being watched by authorities.
Possession of equipment used to manufacture control substance.
Growing marijuana without a license for purpose of resale.
All these variations can result in different situations depending on the quantity caught with a person, the type of drug in possession (synthetic or naturally grown) and whether it is the first offense or not. First time offenders, who are arrested for possession for personal use, can possibly get away with probation and some drugs abuse classes, but other than that, the court system and the court judges take it very serious and will make a statement to others, hoping to keep our communities safe and sound for future generations.
