Common drug crimes include:
Use: You may be arrested under suspicion of using an illicit substance. If any
quantity of an illegal drug is found in your system – blood or urine
tests may be administered – you will be facing drug crime charges.
Possession: Holding onto but not necessarily using an illegal drug is a crime. If the
substance is found within your property and you cannot prove you were
unaware of its existence, you may be facing drug possession charges.
Distribution: Whether selling an illegal drug or merely handing it to another person,
distribution is a serious offense that often carries high fines and jail time.
It should be noted that drug charges do not need to be applied exclusively
to illegal substances. You may be charged with a drug crime if unusual
or suspicious quantities of a common painkillers or anti-depressants,
as well as an assortment of other prescription medications, were involved.
Additionally, where you were arrested may drastically affect the punishments
you could be facing, as being near a school zone with illicit substances
may be considered a felony.
