The Way Drug Penalties Vary in California and Federal Courts

First time drug offenders will usually be entitled to a short term drug treatment program.  When the charge involves possession for sales, or transportation, prison time become the prosecutor's goal for sentencing.  Penalties for schedule 1 narcotic offenses are severe.  Depending on the amount of narcotic seized, a first offense convictions could result in up to a 20 year prison term, plus fines on top of that!  If you have been convicted of 2 previous offenses, you could even face a life term in prison.
