Drug Offenses (Including VUCSA, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Possession and Delivery)

I am available to provide effective legal defense against all drug charges, including:

VUCSA - Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substance Act

Washington defines a “controlled substance” as a drug or substance used in the diagnosis, cure, treatment, or prevention of disease in individuals or animals, or a substance intended to affect the structure or any function of the body of individuals or animals.

RCW 69.50.101

Controlled substances are categorized into Schedules I through IV. Except as explicitly authorized by statute, it is unlawful for any person to manufacture, deliver, or posses with the intent to manufacture of deliver, a controlled substance. Depending upon the type of substance and the amount of the substance in the defendant’s possession, violation of the Uniform Controlled substance Act ranges from a Class B felony to a misdemeanor.

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

“Drug Paraphernalia” means any equipment, products and material of any kind which are used, intended, or designed to be used for planting, growing, harvesting, manufacturing, processing, testing, analyzing, packaging, storing, concealing, injecting, ingesting or inhaling a controlled substance. Any persons who sells, allows to be sold, or gives drug paraphernalia to another commits a Class 1 Civil Infraction.


Possession of a controlled substance, unless obtained directly from a treating physician or via a treating physician’s prescription, while the physician is acting in a professional capacity, is a Class C felony.


Delivery of a controlled substance means the actual or constructive transfer of the substance from one person to another, regardless of whether the defendant is acting on behalf of an employer or agency.
