There are many various crimes that you could be arrested and charged with,
and drug crimes can carry some extremely harsh penalties for conviction.
Controlled substances are divided into five schedules with the most addictive
and least medically recognized in schedule one, and the least dangerous
with the most recognized medical use in schedule five. Various offenses
involving illegal and controlled substances may include cultivation, distribution,
