There are many different crimes that can be committed with the use or transportation of illegal or controlled substances. Possession, however, is the most common offense.

Depending on the amount and the type of substance that is found in your possession, you could face a range of penalties if convicted. For example, if you are charged with possession of less than 1 gram of a Group 1 drug such as cocaine or heroin, then you could face state jail felony penalties of up to 2 years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines. If you are charged with possession of 400 grams or more of a Group 1 drug, then you will face enhanced first-degree felony penalties of up to 99 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
