Akron Xanax Attorney
Drug Crimes Involving Xanax
Although it is legal to possess Xanax under the direction of a physician,
if you are found to be in possession of Xanax without an authorized prescription
you could be facing serious
prescription drug charges. Doctors generally prescribe Xanax to treat panic attacks, anxiety
and depression. It is a type of benzodiazepine and can be highly addictive,
and very difficult to stop to using, even fatal.
Because Xanax has a high potential for abuse, it is considered a controlled
substance under Ohio law. The penalties you could face for crimes associated
with this drug are based in part by the quantity of the substance found
in your possession. Conviction can dramatically alter the course of your life.
The consequences for possession of Xanax drug generally include:
- Jail or prison time
- A permanent criminal record
Your penalties could be further increased if the court believes you were
involved in trafficking the controlled substance. The presence of cash,
a larger quantity of the drug, prescription pads or other evidence could
be used to establish intent to sell. Christopher G. Thomarios, Esq. LLC

If you have been charged with possession or distribution of Xanax, you
are understandably frightened. These are serious charges that should only
be defended by a highly experienced lawyer. Possession in the state of
Ohio can be defined as either actual or constructive. Actual possession
is generally charged when the individual has direct physical control over the drug.
A person not in physical possession but that has control over a drug can
be charged with constructive possession. An example of constructive possession
would be if drugs are found in an automobile and all of the occupants
are charged with possession of those drugs. There are may be several strategies
