Attempted Possession of a Controlled Substance

In Wisconsin, it is a crime to even ATTEMPT to possess an illegal controlled substance.  Section 941.61 provides that anyone who attempts to possess an illegal drug is subject to a criminal charge.  The things the State would need to prove in order to support such a charge are quite simple:

  • That the Defendant attempted to possess a controlled substance.  This means that a Defendant intended to possess an illegal drug, that s/he did things that made it very clear to the government that s/he would have possessed the substance had other things not prevented him/her from doing so.
  • The quantity of the substance does not matter.
  • The Defendant knew or believed that the substance they were attempting to possess was an illegal substance.
