Drugs are classified from Schedules 1 to 3, based on their perceived seriousness in the eyes of the government. Possession of all these drugs, including cocaine, heroin, marijuana, LSD, amphetamines, and ecstasy are among common drug offences.
Possession can be either “constructive possession” or “joint possession”. You may not possess it yourself but know about the drug being in someone else’s custody. The drug may be possessed for personal use or for sale.
Specialized police units investigate drug charges and specialized teams of federal prosecutors carry out the prosecution. How the offence is handled depends on the authorities, from the police to prosecutors and courts.
