Drug Crime Law
The U.S. Controlled Substances Act sets the criteria for what constitutes criminal offenses in the manufacture, possession, sale and abuse of drugs. According to state and federal laws, a controlled substance considered to be a drug can be:
- Illegally prescribed or abuse of prescription drugs
- Altered over-the-counter drugs
- Other illegal substances
The severity of the punishment for a drug crime depends on the type of substance, the quantity, the intent of possession, and local, state and federal laws.
