Felony drug possession charges carry substantial consequences. If you are convicted of felony drug possession — even the lowest degree — you can experience more than prison. You could have lifelong struggles to obtain housing, employment and access to credit. Additionally, criminal convictions can directly affect your position in current or future child custody agreements.
