What is considered a drug offense?
Most directly, it is a crime to use, possess, manufacture, or distribute drugs classified as having a potential for abuse (such as cocaine, heroin, morphine and amphetamines). Other offenses include cultivation, prescription fraud, and trafficking of drugs. A drug offense can be categorized as a misdemeanor or a felony. Varying from state to state, a misdemeanor could consist of a small fine, community service, drug counseling, or probation. A felony is a more serious offense which usually consists of a lengthy jail sentence, large fines, community service, mandatory drug counseling, and probation. Not to mention a mark on your record for life.
