Drug Schedules & Penalties in Madison

Most drug-related crimes in Mississippi are classified as felonies. According to the Mississippi Public Health Code, it is illegal for individuals to knowingly or intentionally possess, manufacture, or exchange a controlled substance.

Felony drug offenses are separated into 5 schedules or categories. Those drugs that are considered most dangerous and have no recognized medicinal purpose are classified as Schedule I. The least dangerous drugs and those which can be used medicinally are classified as Schedule V.

The penalties for each level of drug offense will vary based upon the amount of drugs involved and other circumstances of the case. The penalties are potentially very severe.

How a Conviction Can Impact You

Being convicted for a felony drug crime can completely alter your life. While the main punishments of fines and imprisonment are enough to make anyone fearful for their future, there are several other potential consequences to be concerned about.

Additional ways in which a felony drug conviction can affect your future include:

  • Driver’s license suspension
  • A criminal record
  • Probation
  • Loss of job
  • Ineligibility for professional licenses
  • Inability to run for public office
  • Difficulty finding employment

If you have been arrested for a drug crime, all hope is not lost. Our criminal defense lawyer has a range of defense tactics to use on your behalf to seek a favorable outcome.

Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to argue that:

  • You were falsely accused
