Drug Charges in Skagit County
While drug crime laws in Washington state are currently in flux, with the Washington Supreme Court striking down the state’s drug possession statute in early 2021, the state still criminalizes the possession, sale, distribution, and trafficking of illegal substances, including:
Current law and bills that have been recently introduced by lawmakers mean the potential penalties for drug convictions are dependent on the circumstances of the arrest, including if a weapons or minor were involved in the crime, if the defendant has a prior criminal history, and other mitigating factors. Lawmakers are also trending towards favoring treatment and rehabilitation over incarceration, especially when it comes to minor drug crimes, but that only goes so far. Felony drug charges can still result in prison sentences, large fines, and a criminal record that could follow you for the rest of your life.
