Cocaine Possession Attorneys
In the eyes of the law, some illegal drugs are worse than others. In Oregon, the penalties associated with crack or powder cocaine are very serious. Possessing, delivering or manufacturing cocaine is a felony under Oregon law. Certain charges such as manufacturing or delivering cocaine within 1,000 feet of a school, or delivering cocaine to a person under the age of 18, are Class A felonies. Under certain circumstances, you may also be charged with a commercial drug offense, or CDO. In these situations, you face enhanced penalties.
