What is considered possession?

The term “drug possession” refers to the physical control you have over a particular controlled substance. There are three forms of possession:

  • Actual Possession – The drugs are in your hand.
  • Constructive Possession – You have control of the drugs, such as unprescribed Oxycodone pills in the glove compartment of your car.
  • Joint Possession – You and your roommate keep drugs in a safe to which you both have access.
