Drug Crime Lawyer in Idaho Falls

What are the Drug Laws in Idaho?

The unlawful possession, sale, distribution, manufacture, or cultivation of controlled substances are serious crimes whether they are misdemeanor or felony offenses in the state of Idaho. To understand the charges or penalties that you may be facing, it will be wise to enlist the help of a knowledgeable Idaho Falls criminal defense attorney. At the Cutler Law Office, P.A., we can inform you of your rights and determine which legal options may be available to you given your particular circumstances.

As a former deputy prosecutor with more than 30 years of experience, John E. Cutler, has seen common mistakes that law enforcement officers make when performing an arrest, documenting evidence for a police report, or even instances of officers conducting illegal search and seizure raids.

If we are able to determine that your constitutional rights were violated, we can file a motion to suppress evidence against you. This has helped our clients avoid maximum penalties, reduce charges, and in some cases, completely dismiss charges in state and federal courts in Idaho.

What is Considered Simple Possession?

“Simple possession” refers to the crime of possessing a controlled substance. It’s called “simple” to distinguish it from several other drug crimes related to manufacturing and distribution of controlled substances. Possessing any amount of a controlled substance is sufficient evidence for a simple possession charge. These requirements, and the associated penalties, vary depending on the illegal substance in question. To classify the possession of drugs other than marijuana, Idaho uses the schedule system. These schedules range from 1 to 6, with a schedule 1 possession charge being the most serious.

What is Considered a Misdemeanor Drug Crime?

Examples of misdemeanor drug crime charges include:

  • Possession of small quantities of Marijuana
  • Possession of, use of, or intent to use drug paraphernalia

What is Considered a Felony Drug Crime?

Examples of felony drug crime charges include:

  • Felony possession of narcotics
  • Felony possession of opium and opiates
  • Felony possession of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)
  • Possession of more than 3 ounces of marijuana
  • Sale, distribution, or possession with intent to sell opiates, hallucinogens, codeine, steroids, and prescription medication

What are the Penalties for Drug Possession in Idaho?

In Idaho, offenders are required to go through a substance abuse evaluation for possession, cultivation, and sale violations. If this is the first violation, a charge of simple possession or the offender is not in need of treatment this requirement may be waived.
