Understanding Drug Offense Charges
The nature of the charges against you and the penalties you may face depend on the types of drugs involved, the quantities, and whether the drugs were for personal use or distribution. Crimes involving Schedule I drugs like opioids, cocaine, and mescaline carry the most serious penalties, with harsher sentences for higher quantities. Manufacturing or selling any of these drugs will likely result in a felony. On the other hand, recent legal changes have made it so that simple possession of any scheduled drug can only be charged as a misdemeanor.
