What is an Illegal Drug in York County?
Come on- you know what an illegal drug is. What you may not know is how the South Carolina legislature has classified certain types of drugs and how the penalties associated with different types of drug possession differ. For example, a first time possession of marijuana conviction carries up to 30 days in jail while a first time possession of cocaine conviction carries up to 3 years. South Carolina classifies drugs in Schedules I-IV, with marijuana, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamine, and others falling into different categories. Depending on what category the drug is in, you could be facing bigger penalties.
