The VUSCA, or the Violation of the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, is a Washington law that explains all the penalties and legal actions involved in the use and possession of controlled substances, including illegal substances and the possession or sale of pharmaceutical drugs.
Law enforcement officials and prosecutors believe that drug abuse is on the rise, so law enforcers have an eye for violators as they highly prioritize these cases. At the office of Thomas J. Cunnane, Inc., we handle a wide range of drug related and VUCSA cases.
When charged with VUSCA violations, the penalties and punishments are severe. It is imperative that you contact an Everett drug crimes defense attorney to help you handle legal matters. If you have been charged with a VUCSA-related crime, you need to see a lawyer from our firm as soon as possible to find out the specific details of your charge.
Depending on the type of drug which was allegedly found and the amount in question, this crime could be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. There are many different elements that a prosecutor will need to prove, all of which we work to disprove. By thoroughly gathering evidence in your case, we strive to prevent a conviction.
