Drug Possession Lawyer in Columbus

Many think of street drugs such as meth or crack in connection with a drug possession charge. The Ohio Schedule of Controlled Substances has five categories and includes prescription medications which are categorized based upon how dangerous or addictive they are. For example , OxyContin is a Schedule II substance and cough syrup which contains a small amount of codeine is a Schedule V substance. Illegal possession of OxyContin is treated far more seriously than possession of a cough syrup. The larger the amount of the substance involved in the drug charge, the greater the potential for a longer prison term. Larger amounts of drugs can result in charges of possession with intent to distribute or possession with intent to sell.
