As with all criminal charges, the term “drug crimes” encompasses a wide range of offenses, including:
Possession of a small quantity of marijuana for personal use
Possession of small amounts of cocaine or other “street drugs”
Possession of drug paraphernalia
Possession of prescription drugs such as painkiller narcotics without a prescription
Possession of any controlled substance with intent to sell
Distribution of a controlled substance
Large-scale drug trafficking
Conspiracy to commit any of the above-mentioned offenses
Some people charged with drug crimes have chemical dependency problems and need treatment. Others have been caught up in circumstances involving other people who committed illegal acts: a spouse, a college roommate, or a friend driving or riding along in the same car. Some have been targeted in drug busts triggered by plea bargains by offenders who testified against their friends, roommates, or family members in exchange for lighter sentences.
