Crimes Involving Drugs

Drug crimes in California can include crimes regarding illegal substances or prescription drugs. These may be classified as felonies or misdemeanors. California treats drug crimes on a case-by-case basis, with drug felonies punishable by sentences in state prisons, and drug misdemeanor offenses garnering you up to a year in a county jail. Possession of a controlled substance in California is usually classified as a misdemeanor, but this, too, can have long-term consequences for your future.
