The potential penalties a person faces if sentenced on drug charges vary, and many of them are quite severe. The severity may take the form of a large fine, an extended stay in prison, and/or the loss of certain rights - like the right to possess firearms or vote, for example. Because of the variability of these crimes, as well as the potential severity of the consequences, it is important that anyone facing such charges has a full understanding of their legal rights and every law involved so a strong defense can be formed.
