Many illegal drugs are illegal for good reason. Substances such as cocaine and heroin are extremely addictive and extremely dangerous, often causing users to do reckless or dangerous acts while under the influence or simply to get another fix.

The severity of these charges can change based on the type of drug and the quantity of the drug or drugs involved in your charges as well as many other factors.
