The possession of even a microscopic amount of a controlled substance can constitute possession. You will definitely want to fire an experienced criminal defense attorney to work with you and help you to minimize the effect of this possibly serious charge.

You could be charged with possession of heroin, a serious felony, and drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor. They could both impact your life in many ways and they have mandatory driver's license sanctions. Consult with a criminal defense attorney with experience handling drug crimes at once.

This depends on your record, what the drug tests found, and the specific charges. Heroin possession is a felony with possible prison time, but normally ends with probation or deferment if there are no distribution allegations. It is important that you get a good attorney to help you with this.
