Crystal Meth Drug Charges in Las Vegas

Under Nevada law, crystal meth is categorized as a Schedule II controlled substance. Possession of this drug is charged as a felony. On a first-offense possession charge, you may be able to have the charge dismissed in return for the completion of the terms of Nevada Drug Court, a diversion program. A repeat offense of this charge is punishable by fines and incarceration. It is also a felony in Nevada to possess crystal meth with the intent to sell it, to sell or manufacture the substance, or to engage in crystal meth trafficking. These latter offenses generally involve a greater quantity of drugs than possession for one's own use and may be based on evidence of large amounts of cash, drugs bagged in separate containers, or equipment or other material used in the manufacture or sale of the drug.

Whether at the state or federal level, crystal meth sales, manufacture, and trafficking are serious offenses involving prison terms and a future as a convicted felon. Gaining employment after a drug felony conviction may be problematic.
