Although the perspectives of some lawmakers are changing to viewing addiction as a disease rather than a crime, you’ll still be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law if found guilty of being in possession of any amount of cocaine.
This is especially true if the defendant is poorly represented, or not represented at all.
