Controlled substances are substances that are obtained through a prescription from a doctor or have been determined to be illegal and of no medical use by federal or state law. Drugs that are controlled are monitored carefully because of the potential for addiction, misuse, abuse and harm to the general public and the potential for drug trafficking, the making of illegal money and the potential for violence that goes along with drug sales.drug charges Chicago. States have different classifications and penalties based on different controlled substances. The fines and punishments that go along with the use, possession, manufacturing, distribution, trafficking, producing and delivery of controlled substances differs at both state and federal levels. On the federal level, drug offenses generally result in heavier sentences. That is because oftentimes charges such as drug trafficking involve the moving of drugs across state lines. On a state level, drug possession charges are seen more often and generally carry less harsh sentences."

The possession of up to an ounce of cannabis has been legalized, but the sale, delivery or growing of marijuana is still a crime. Criminal charges stemming from possession, sales, distribution, or trafficking of drugs like heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and prescription drugs without a prescription are felonies. Felonies carry more severe penalties than misdemeanor offenses, including prison (over one year), and can include large fines."
