Anyone who is charged with possession of a drug may look at this to understand the seriousness of the crime. The possession or distribution of any controlled substance is a crime in the country and there can be serious consequences for the same. More often than not the person would be facing a prison term with a fine and a criminal record. However, it is possible that the person charged may face much more than this if they are faced with other additional offenses. This is most likely in case the person is caught with driving while in possession or driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated.
