Felony Drug Charges
If you have been accused of a drug-related crime, you may face misdemeanor charges or, in more serious situations, felony charges. If you are facing a felony drug charge, you will need an experienced drug crimes defense attorney by your side. The penalties for drug-related felonies are incredibly high.

Types of Felony Drug Charges
There are many drug offenses that could warrant felony charges. Possession of illegal drugs is the most common drug charge brought against individuals. You could be charged with a felony if you were in possession of any of the following:
- Cocaine, Heroin, GHB, Oxycodone, Ketamine, Hydrocodone, or Methamphetamine
- Ecstacy, PCP, or mescaline
- Valium, Xanax, or Ritalin
Less common than possession charges are drug dealing charges. The punishment for drug manufacturing, distributing and/or selling in Wisconsin can be much more severe than the punishments for drug possession.
Being charged with a drug-related felony can ruin your reputation, prevent you from getting the jobs that you want, force you to spend years in prison, and require that you pay astronomical fines to the state.
