One important category of criminal law in Wisconsin is drug possession. Wisconsin’s Controlled Substances Act penalizes possession based on the type of drug. For instance, possession of cocaine, a hallucinogenic, or a stimulant like LSD could result in up to $5,000 in fines and up to 1 year in prison for a first offense and increased Class I felony penalties for a subsequent offense.
That's why it's imperative you contact the Milwaukee drug possession lawyer at Bayer Law Offices right away if you are facing such a charge.
