Learning The Different Types Of Drug Crimes
The term “controlled substances” refers to a wide range of drugs, including ecstasy, marijuana, LSD, heroin, cocaine, oxycodone and muscle relaxers. Both street and prescription drugs are considered controlled substances. However, the possession of prescription drugs is only illegal if you do not have a valid prescription. A number of different criminal offenses are classified as drug crimes, including:
- Possession of controlled substances
- Distribution of controlled substances
- Manufacture of controlled substances
- Possession of controlled substances with the intent to distribute
Marijuana is still classified as an illegal substance in Indiana. Because marijuana is still illegal, you can face criminal penalties for possessing, distributing or manufacturing it. Even first-time offenders can face up to 180 days in jail and $1,000 in fines for possession of marijuana. The penalties are even more severe for repeat offenders.
