Arrested for Cocaine Possession in Utah?
What is Cocaine?
Cocaine, from the leaves of the coca plant, is one of the most powerfully addictive drugs.
Cocaine is distributed on the street in two main forms: cocaine hydrochloride, a white crystalline powder that can be snorted or dissolved in water and injected; and crack cocaine hydrochloride that has been processed with ammonia or baking soda and water into a freebase cocaine. These chips, chunks, or rocks can be smoked.
Heavy use of cocaine may produce hallucinations, paranoia, aggression, insomnia and depression. Cocaine in powder-form is also called coke, snow, nose candy, flake, blow, big C, lady, white and snowbirds.
Possession of Cocaine is a felony offense in Utah. Punishment can range from zero years to life, in the Utah State Prison. Educate yourself about drug possession charges and defenses in Utah and contact a qualified criminal defense attorney soon after your arrest or charge.
