Drug Crimes

A drug related crime is a criminal offense that often involves possession, use, sale, manufacture, or distribution of an illegal narcotic. The US DEA uses the Controlled Substance Act to provide information on criteria and classification for substances. In Utah, illegal narcotics include: cocaine, crack, heroin, LSD, marijuana, methamphetamine (meth), steroids, opium, and unauthorized prescription drugs. Drug crimes may be classified as a misdemeanors or felonies. The classification usually depends upon the type of drug involved, the amount of the drug under possession, and the type of drug crime committed.

Persons convicted of a drug crime may be punished with imprisonment, fines, community service, probation, parole, and court ordered treatment.
