Drug charges Back

Drug Charges usually fall into five categories:

  • Possession
  • Trafficking
  • Possession with the intent to traffic
  • Production
  • Importing

The severity of the case depends on quantity and the type of drug the individual is being charged with. Some examples include cocaine, heroin, hashish, ecstasy, magic mushrooms among many others.

Substances are broken down into “Schedules” where Schedule I drugs like heroin have higher charges than a Schedule II drug like marijuana. Trafficking and production of these drugs will usually lead to higher levels of punishment rather than sole possession.
