Drug crimes are common in the State of Mississippi, and many people are arrested every day for a drug related crime. Some drug related crimes are considered petty and don’t have significant punishments attached to them, while others – such as drug trafficking – are considered more serious. Examples of drug crimes include but are not limited to:
- Possession of illegal substances
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Sale of illegal substances
- Sale of illegal substances to a minor or close to a school
- Drug trafficking
- Driving under the influence of drugs
Drug crimes are punished harshly, and if you are found guilty of committing a drug crime, you could face serious penalties including jail or prison time, thousands of dollars worth of fines, mandatory drug and alcohol counseling, probation and even the loss of your driver’s license if the crime you were convicted of involved your vehicle.
