There are two types of possession charges: constructive possession and actual possession. Constructive possession means that the drugs were not found on you, but the presence of paraphernalia such as syringes or needs is enough to warrant a charge. Actual possession means the drugs were found in your presence.
- Manufacturing: Anyone who is involved in the growing or producing of illegal drugs can be charged with drug manufacturing. Examples include cultivating marijuana or creating drugs by mixing chemicals in a lab.
- Distribution / trafficking: This includes selling, delivering, and supplying any controlled substances. Most distribution charges occur through undercover operations by DEA agents or police officers. A majority of distribution charges are felonies and involve charge from both the state and the federal government.

Penalties for Drug Charges
Depending on your charges, drug crime penalties can include fines and extended time in prison. The severity of your charge will depend on prior offenses, whether minors are involved, the laws in your jurisdiction, and etc. Your future is also at stake because even after you serve your time and paid off your debt to society, you will still have to live with a criminal record. This can limit your employment opportunities, housing options, and more. Many convicted individuals find it hard to reintegrate back into society after a conviction.
