Simple Possession

According to T.C.A §39-17-418, any drug can be “simply possessed” in Tennessee depending on the circumstances.  Felony drug charges can even be reduced to misdemeanor simple possession with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney.


Even though Simple Possession is a misdemeanor, it is still a serious offense and you should not try to handle it alone.  After a second conviction, any future convictions can be punished as felony offenses.


There are often defenses to drug possession charges if the police violated your constitutional rights during their investigation or arrest of you.  You need an experienced criminal defense attorney who will fight for your best interests and help you get the best outcome for your situation.
