    Answered . I agree. Possession of meth will not strike you out anymore, but can lead to a doubled prison sentence. But there are other options and a criminal defense attorney can help you. Why you would take the risk and possess meth with two prior strikes and 10 years under your belt is beyond me; using it will eventually strike you out completely in a read sense. If you need help get it immediately; don't wait on somebody else or the courts to give it to you. There are many programs and avenues to pursue. Chances are, if you eliminate meth or other drugs from your life you will distance yourself from the courts, and your life will steadily improve.
