Please help!
They would call the full weight of grams of controlled substance. For example if I was caught with 14 grams of heroin. It would be possession of 14 grams of heroin. There is no way I would have that small amount of pure heroin there would be some sort of cut already in the product from the distributor before me obtaining it. Not to say a good defense attorney may not know some angels of defense .
