Types of Charges

A commercial drug offense is a classification that is attached to common possession, distribution, and manufacturing charges. It can increase the penalties you may be facing and result in substantial prison time.
The state of Oregon must prove three of the following to successfully convict someone of a commercial drug offense:
- Delivery of drugs such as heroin, cocaine, marijuana, or other controlled substances for consideration (money)
- Possession of $300 or more in cash
- Possession of a customer or transaction list
- Possession of lands used to manufacture drugs
- Possession of drug manufacturing equipment
- Possession of materials used for packaging drugs (such as scales or foil)
- Possession of stolen property
- Possession of firearms
In addition, the quantity of the drug also can be a factor in determining if the offense is a commercial drug offense. A skilled drug-crime attorney can fight these allegations by scrutinizing the conduct of law enforcement to determine whether your rights were violated during your arrest. If the police used a search warrant, they will make sure that it was carried out in adherence to Oregon state law.
