What is a "Drug Crime"?

Drug crimes are defined as offenses involving the criminal possession, sale, distribution, trafficking or manufacturing of a controlled substance. There are many chemicals and organic substances that are prohibited for use, sale, manufacturing and distribution, including the following:

  • LSD
  • 2C-I "Smiles"
  • PCP
  • Heroin
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Ecstasy
  • Ketamine (Special K)
  • Opium
  • Peyote

You can also be charged with a drug crime if you are found with certain prescription medications in your possession. Possession of certain prescription medication is illegal if the individual has not been issued a valid prescription for that specific medication. It doesn’t matter if the drug is not illegal to possess—if you have been caught with certain painkillers, sedatives, barbiturates, etc., you can still face serious penalties.
