A possession offense is usually being charged of possessing something illegal in the country you are being charged such as drugs, or paraphernalia (property/images etc...) depending on what the possession is and the amount of what ever it is you are charged with possessing it can be a minor or a federal offense. Possession with intent to distribute can in some places earn you a life sentence or a sentence of death (ex: Thailand).

In football if the offense has the ball on fourth down and fumbles then the defense fumbles in the exact same place where they picked up the ball and the offense gets it back whose ball is it?

As long as there was a clear change of possession to the defense before they fumbled the ball back to the offense, then the offense would keep the ball and get a new set of downs. If the defense fumbled the ball back to the offense without ever establishing possession, then the ball would go over to the defense on downs. The only way the offense could retain possession in this case is if the ball ended up beyond the first-down marker when the offense finally recovered.
