A: It's really all going to depend on the amount/weight that the crime lab determines was involved. If low enough, then it would be considered a misdemeanor. Regardless, the main thing is, assuming that you have been legitimately charged, you get with an experienced criminal defense lawyer so that they can review your paperwork and case and figure out the best course of action.
