Some drug crimes charges that Marcie can help defend you against include, but are not limited to:
- Possession for sales or distribution
- Drug trafficking
- Drug manufacturing
- Cultivation of a controlled substance
- Prescription fraud
Of the multitude of illegal drugs bought and sold in California, several appear more frequently in drug crimes cases. This popularity is largely contributed by the ease in which they’re made and the effects on their users. Some drugs common in the San Bernardino area include:

- MDMA (ecstacy)
- Prescription opiates including oxycodone, morphine, and hydromorphone
