Constructive Versus Actual Possession

There are two different types of possession associated with drug charges — actual and constructive. If you can assert dominion and control over a substance, you are said to have constructive possession, even if it is not on your body. This could include situations where drugs are present in your dorm room, motor vehicle, fraternity, sorority or in your apartment. Actual possession consists of having the illegal substance on your person. Police are able to charge for illegally holding drugs if you qualify for either of these types of possession.
