Drug Possession and Distribution

There are many forms of drug possession and distribution ranging from misdemeanor to serious felony cases. Generally simple possession of a schedule three drug such as marijuana is a misdemeanor and there are alternatives to conviction available for first offenders. Schedule one and two drugs such as heroin and cocaine are felonies and have greater consequences but still have a first offender program available. Distribution is generally more serious and carries greater penalties than simple possession.
