Types of Drug Crimes in Alabama

In Alabama, drug crimes encompass a wide range of offenses, varying in severity and penalties. Understanding the types of drug crimes is crucial for individuals navigating the state's legal system:

  • Possession: This includes having illegal drugs or controlled substances for personal use. Depending on the type and quantity of the drug, possession can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony.
  • Distribution or Trafficking: Selling, transporting, or delivering illegal drugs constitutes distribution or trafficking. These offenses carry harsh penalties, especially for large quantities or involvement in drug trafficking organizations.
  • Manufacturing or Cultivation: Producing illegal drugs or growing controlled substances, such as marijuana, is a serious offense in Alabama. Manufacturing or cultivation charges can result in lengthy prison sentences and hefty fines.
  • Prescription Drug Fraud: If an individual obtains or distributes prescription medication illegally, such as opioids or benzodiazepines, this is considered prescription drug fraud. This includes forging prescriptions, doctor shopping, or selling prescription medications unlawfully.

Understanding Common Drug-Related Crimes

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).
