Possession of Heroin Attorney in Orange County
Zealously Protecting Those Accused of Drug Crimes

meaning that the government considers it to be one of the most dangerous
drugs there is. As such, simple possession is charged as a felony. Even
possession of drug paraphernalia, such as syringes or needles, can subject
a person to criminal charges under California Health and Safety Code section 11364.
