(A)  Grounds of Removal.  This situation will generally be treated as multiple separate convictions for purposes of the controlled substances, aggravated felony, and drug abuse/addiction grounds.[164]  There should be no effect on the crime involving moral turpitude or “reason to believe” grounds, since multiple possessory offenses still do not equal drug trafficking offenses.
