Illegal substances involved in a drug crime can include:
- Prescription medications
One of the most common types of drug crimes is the illegal possession of any illegal drug or controlled substance. Depending on the type of drug and the amount, the penalties can vary greatly.
Alabama law determines the severity of crime and penalty based on the type of drug, organized into five "schedules." On one end of the spectrum, Schedule V drugs are controlled dangerous substances that are the least dangerous and are commonly used medicinally; Schedule I drugs on the other end are controlled dangerous substances with high potential for abuse such as opiates.
Additionally, you can get in serious legal trouble for crimes of cultivation (growing plants classified as controlled substances), manufacturing (illegal drug production), trafficking (selling or transporting illegal drugs), and possession with intent (possessing illegal drugs with the intention to sell them).
