Drugs generally correlate to different types of crimes in multiple ways. Directly, it is a crime to use, possess, distribute, or manufacture substances having potential for abuse. Drugs can also relate to crime based on the effects they have on the abuser's behavior and by generating violence or other illegal activity in correlation to drag trafficking.

Punishment for being charged with a drug crime is based on multiple factors but the basics are based on:

  • The quantity of the substance
  • Its classification or danger under schedules
  • The purpose of the possession

Along with this, more factors that may be used to determine the severity of an individual's punishment include whether or not you were:

  • Producing Illegal Substances
  • Selling Illegal Substances
  • Manufacturing Illegal Substances
  • Possessing Illegal Substances with Intent to Sell
  • Using minors to distribute the substances
  • The substances are delivered to minors
  • The substances were sold or distributed on school or other public property.

Even possessing substances for private use is considered to be a serious crime but in most cases, it is punished far less harshly than allocation crimes (for example, medical marijuana).

Most drug crimes result in felony charges. Being accused of a drug crime is something to take very seriously. It is important that you contact me if you have been charged with a drug crime. Often, I can reduce the charge which will present you with much better options.
