Drug Cases in Lehigh County
Bottom line — many drug cases in Lehigh County involve the potential for jail and the loss of your license. Even seemingly small possession cases can bring about a license suspension — it depends on a lot of issues surrounding the evidence and the facts and circumstances of the stop. It also depends on whether the drugs were any of the following: marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, LSD, mescaline, amphetamines, methamphetamine (meth, ice), Ecstasy, “Molly”, and prescription narcotics and drugs such as Xanax, Vicodin, Codeine/Hydrocodeine Morphine, and OxyContin (oxycodone).

Many drug cases are won on suppression of evidence. Frequently, the police fail to follow procedure and the Constitution when they search and/or seize your home and property. There may be warrant issues or an illegal vehicle stop. Your detention may have been illegal. All of these issues are very important to your case. It will be critical to determine and create a list of potential defenses with your Lehigh attorney.
