Each offense can carry its own penalties, depending on the circumstances of the crime and your criminal history. For example, a judge may be slightly lenient on a first time offender while someone with a hefty record may face harsher consequences.

The penalties for drug crime convictions may include the following:

  • Delivery or manufacturing of controlled substances: 180 days in jail to life in prison and a fine up to $250,000
