The severity of penalties varies, depending on the type of drug, the amount of drugs that are possessed, and other factors.

While people are often aware of the potential criminal penalties they may face for a drug possession offense, many people do not realize that a conviction for drug possession may also subject them to a lengthy driver’s license suspension.
