Every state handles the possession of drugs differently, and the repercussions vary widely. Drug possession can range from having a small amount for personal consumption all the way through to larger amounts with the intent to distribute or to sell.
In some states, illegal marijuana possession (less than two ounces) varies from a petty offense whereas in Texas it is often a Class B misdemeanor- permanently reflected on your record if you are convicted.
The goal of the prosecutor is to prove you knew the substance in question was a controlled or illegal substance, and that you were aware of having control or possession, of the drug.

For those who have a criminal record, it may be difficult to find a job or a place to live. You will no longer be eligible for state and federal student loans. Many people lose their driver’s license for 6 months or more. You could be sentenced to jail time.
