Controlled SubstancesThe term “controlled substance” is used to refer to many different types of drugs. It includes commonly known drugs such as cocaine, heroine, methamphetamine, acid, LSD, ecstasy, opium and a variety of hallucinogens. In addition, it includes many other forms of prescription drugs such as valium, oxycontin and hyrdocodone.

Controlled Substance offenses are divided by two sub-categories:

  1. Possession
  2. Delivery

Controlled SubstancesWhat Does This Mean

Because of the complexity of the law pertaining to Controlled Substances, and the immense number of drugs which qualify as such, a chart explaining punishment ranges would be extremely complex and confusing.

What is important for you to realize, is that almost every Controlled Substance offense is classified as a FELONY, so it is absolutely necessary that anyone facing these charges contact a qualified criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.
