These crimes can involve any type of narcotic or controlled substance, such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, methamphetamine, heroin and any prescription drugs, including oxycodone (OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin) and alprazolam (Xanax).
Consequences And Penalties
When it comes to a conviction on a drug charge, the punishments can range from probation and fines to years in jail. Even simple possession comes with a fine of $2,500.
