The possession, manufacture or distribution of controlled substances is subject to criminal punishment under both state and federal laws. Depending on the type and amount of the substance and the specific activity involved, punishment may range from a fine or probation to imprisonment for more than a decade. In addition to having penalties enhanced under the federal sentencing guidelines for factors like firearm usage or prior convictions, defendants face increased consequences under state sentencing guidelines if, for example, the drug crime was committed in the vicinity of a school or juvenile.
