Will I Go to Jail for Drug Possession?
There are a number of different factors that will impact the penalties
you face if convicted of drug possession. For example, if you were found
with heroin, you will likely face much harsher consequences than if you
were found in possession of illegal prescription drugs. Why? Because heroin
is considered a much more lethal and addictive substance than most prescription drugs.
In addition to the type of drug, the following factors may impact your case:
- How much of the controlled substance you were found with
- The location you were arrested at (school, playground, home, etc.)
- Your past record of criminal offenses, including drug offenses
- Whether or not you crossed state lines with the substance
- If you were found with paraphernalia like baggies and scales that indicate sales
