Why You May Be Arrested for a Drug Crime & Potential Punishments
You don’t have to be in possession of an illegal drug to be arrested for a drug crime. Legal substances obtained or used illegally can also be grounds for a drug charge, such as prescription medication. You may be charged with:
- Drug distribution, in which you transport an illegal drug to a person or location.
- Drug possession, where you have an illegal substance on you, in your home or vehicle.
- Drug sales, where you sell illegal drugs for profit or in exchange for goods or services.
- Drug use, if you are caught using an illegal substance or possess it with the intent to use it.
You may also be charged with manufacture of a drug or for possessing drug paraphernalia. The amount of drugs you are caught with will influence your sentencing and can carry punishments of jail time, fines, community service and prison time.
