Las Vegas Drug Possession Attorneys

Protecting Your Rights After a Possession Arrest

Being found in possession of drugs – whether it’s something as benign as marijuana or as serious as methamphetamines – is not a minor offense. In Nevada, being charged with drug possession can result in harsh penalties that can jeopardize your future and liberties.

When facing something as serious as being charged with a drug crime, you should not hesitate to secure the defense you need – at The Draskovich Law Group, our Las Vegas drug crime lawyers are highly skilled in defending clients against a wide range of drug crimes.

Call (702) 381-6590 today to learn more about how we can help.


While some states separate drug possession charges by drug type and amount, Nevada will enforce the same penalties for possession of cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, and meth. The severity of the crime, however, can depend on whether this is your first or subsequent offense.

Penalties for drug possession can include:

  • First or second offense: Crime is charged as a Class E felony and carries a sentence of one to four years in prison
  • Third offense: Crime is charged as a Class D felony and can include a prison sentence of four years and $20,000 in fines
