Possession of drugs refers to the crime of possessing any amount of an illegal controlled substance such as: marijuana, PCP, LSD, cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, or Ecstasy.
Drug possession is punishable by both state and federal law. If a person is charged with drug possession, the amount of the drug under possession, the reason for possession, if there was intent to sell the drugs, and the type of drug under possession will be consider in a court of law. The penalty if the drug offender planned to sell or deliver to minors, has prior drug convictions, or has a prior criminal record leads to density of the sentence. Punishments for possession include fines, imprisonment, probation, community service, and registration as a drug offender.
