Ecstasy

MDMA or 3,4 Methylenedioxymethamphetamine or commonly known as Ecstasy or ‘rave drug’ is a controlled substance under the Government’s ‘Controlled Substance Act.’ It is a schedule-I drug which indicates its high potential for abuse and no medicinal use. In the state of California, the possession or 'possession with the intention of selling' is governed by Health and Safety Code 11377 & 11378 HS. As MDMA has no accepted medical use and FDA does not approve it, there cannot be any simple justification for the possession of the drug. Therefore, if you are facing charges for possession of MDMA, you should immediately consult an expert defense attorney that has the first-hand experience of MDMA or ecstasy cases. Trying to navigate the criminal system on your own can backfire at any time, and you may end up with severe penalties having lifetime implications.

Ecstasy creates a feeling of euphoria, making people feel highly energetic and excited. Therefore, it is a famous ‘partygoers’ drug which is used by youngsters in clubs, concerts, and private parties. It is a combination of both stimulants and hallucinogen which not only make people high but see and imagine non-existent things. MDMA is a highly dangerous drug with severe mental effects including anxiety, depression, paranoia, as well as physical effects such as dehydration, seizures, arrhythmia or in case of overdose, it can be fatal. Due to its various physical and mental side effects, it is a classified drug under Schedule-I.

When you are arrested for possession or possession for sale of MDMA or ecstasy, the prosecutor can file charges as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the quantity of the drug, your previous conviction and your defense legal representation.  In case of a misdemeanor, a convict can be allowed to attend a drug diversion program instead of serving jail time. With an experienced defense attorney on your side, the chances of qualifying for drug diversion program increases. By informing the judge about the specific circumstances of your case, we try to make you eligible for drug rehabilitation, thus avoiding jail time.

Even if you are found to possess a high amount of MDMA and are charged with possession with an intent to sell, we can help you. By explaining to judge that you only possessed the drug for personal use, we aim at reducing punishment and avoiding jail time. To know more about the specific penalties and the circumstances of your case, you can directly talk to one of our criminal defense lawyer at (800) 755-5174.
