UPDATE 2: Kokesh Charged with Drug Possession

Following the raid on the house of Adam Kokesh by US Park Police and Hendron, Virginia police,  Adam Kokesh was held overnight at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center and charged with possession of schedule I and II drugs while in possession of a firearm, said Lt. Steve Elbert, a spokesman for the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office.

He was arraigned in Fairfax County General District Court this morning and scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Oct. 2.

Possession of Schedule I or II drugs is a felony in Virginia, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a maximum $2,500 fine. If convicted of possession of Schedule I or II drugs while also in possession of a firearm, Kokesh would face an additional minimum of two years in prison.


The Virginia Drug Control Act defines Schedule I drugs as narcotics that have “no accepted medical use” such as heroin and LSD.

Schedule II drugs are defined as narcotics that have a “high potential for abuse” but have accepted medical use. Those drugs include PCP, cocaine, methadone, and methamphetamine.
