What Is Considered Drug Possession?
Drug possession is the unlawful control of a controlled substance. Possession can be actual, constructive, or joint. Actual possession means that the controlled substance is on the accused person. Constructive possession means that the controlled substance is located somewhere else, but the accused can control access to the controlled substance. Joint possession means that multiple people are in control of the controlled substance.
In Virginia, a person can be charged with possession of marijuana, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, prescription drugs, and other controlled substances. Possession charges can range from a Class 1 misdemeanor to a felony, depending on the amount of the substance, whether the accused is a repeat offender, and other circumstances.
