If you have been arrested on drug charges, you may be worrying about the potential consequences you face. The seriousness of drug crime penalties often depends on the quantity of drugs involved. Possession of a small amount of a controlled substance can often be resolved without a trial or a conviction. However, distribution of larger quantities can lead to an indictment for trafficking.
