Drug Possession in Raleigh

Penalties for the Possession of Drugs

Drug possession are punished according to a set of schedules as defined in the North Carolina Controlled Substances Act.

  • Schedule I substances, such as heroin, ecstasy and opiates have a high potential for abuse and no medical use. Possession of a Schedule I substance is a Class I felony, punishable by 4-5 months imprisonment.
  • Schedule II substances, such as cocaine, morphine, and Ritalin, have high potential for abuse with medical use under severe restrictions. Possession of a Schedule II drug is a Class 1 misdemeanor, punishable by 45 days in jail.

If you are arrested for the illegal possession of a controlled substance, you need the help of an aggressive criminal defense lawyer to fight the charges against you. The severity of the case depends on a variety of factors, including the quantity and schedule of the drug that is alleged to have been found in your possession and any criminal background you may have prior to your arrest. A skilled attorney may be able to have your drug charges dropped or reduced.
