Legal Defenses for Possession for Sale

An illegal search and seizure occurs when the police search you or your property without a warrant for doing so, search areas that weren’t a part of the warrant, or search you or your property without probable cause.

Simple possession of narcotics is a less serious offense than possession for sale. If you didn’t have the intent to sell you shouldn’t be charged with possession for sale.

It’s possible to have drugs planted on your person or on your property. You have to know about the drugs in order to be guilty of possession for sale.
