The possession, manufacture, trafficking, and distribution of controlled substances is regulated by laws on the state and federal level. It does not matter in which state you reside, federal drug laws are applicable to all citizens of the United States.
There are two primary categories for controlled substances- non-narcotic and narcotic prescription medications. Due to its high possibility for abuse without the supervision and authorization of a licensed doctor, a non-narcotic drug falls under the scope of controlled substances. Widespread controlled substances consist of:
There is a significant difference between the punishment for possessing a minor quantity of drugs and the charges faced for dealing. Charges for possession frequently occur when someone is apprehended with a small amount of a single drug. In this case, there is not the assumption of selling or distribution. When the same drug and amount is exchanged with another individual, charges for dealing are given.
Dealing encompasses the trade, exchange, transport, or sale of one or more drugs between one party and another. Charges for possession do not involve cash or large quantities of drugs or the exchange of drugs. On the other hand, charges for dealing can be given for the single intent of making an exchange.
The consequences for being in possession of drugs in large quantities are more severe because of the assumption of distributing those drugs to several people, not just an individual.
The punishment for the possession of drugs is less severe than for dealing drugs. When there is the opportunity for distributing, manufacturing, or selling drugs to a wider base of customers, this is considered drug trafficking and the consequences are even more severe.
