Possession and use of drugs are often not considered serious crimes by the public because it is a rather common crime among normal minors and teenagers. Still, it is important to remember that possession of marijuana or hashish of a weight of 15 grams establishes grounds according to which possession of the drug is not intended solely for personal use. Similarly, use of drugs with a group of people is considered a violation of supplying drugs to someone else. Most suspects, being normal people admit to possession of drugs for their personal use and in many cases due to their naïveté they admit to using drugs in a social setting.
Due to admissions like these, suspects of drug possession can strengthen the accusation made against them and turn it into a crime of drug supply. In both cases (possession not for personal use and drug possession) are considered serious criminal offenses. Most people who use soft drugs are often not aware of the fact that the state attorney and the courts see these offenses in a most grave light and that the state attorney in many cases demands active prison sentences for those who have been convicted of such offenses.
