Ohio Heroin Possession Laws

Columbus Criminal Defense Lawyer

Interestingly enough, an individual charged with Heroin possession does not actually have to have the Heroin on their physical body in order to be charged with possession. Rather, the individual only needs to be found to have the illegal drugs within their control. Specifically, their are cases where an individual can be found to have control of the drug by means of constructive possession. Constructive possession is when the individual is found to have "access" to these illegal drugs even if they are not within their physical surroundings.
