Chicago Methamphetamine Possession Attorney
Aggressive Defense for Meth Charges in Chicago, IL
Methamphetamine, also known as meth, speed, crystal, ice, crank or glass, is a controlled substance that is known to be highly addictive and harmful to users. It affects the brain and the central nervous system. Criminal drug crime charges related to methamphetamine are generally serious as well; a defendant may face felony charges for simple possession of meth and may face extremely harsh penalties if convicted of possession with intent or trafficking of methamphetamine. For example, the penalty for possession with intent to deliver in the case of meth may carry a sentence of 3 to 60 years in state prison. This substance is also commonly associated with drug manufacturing charges, as in the case of “meth labs”.
