Yes, two people can be charged with possession of the same drug under the legal theory of constructive possession. For example, if the police found a rock of crack cocaine on a coffee table during the execution of a search warrant, and you and a friend were found seated around the table, you could both be charged with possession of crack cocaine. This is true because the crack cocaine was in found in an area over which you both exercised possession and control.
