Drugs That Are Illegal in Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, it is illegal to possess and distribute unauthorized prescription drugs and controlled substances such as:

  • Marijuana
  • Methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin

Pennsylvania separates drugs into schedules based on risk level or addiction likelihood. Drug conviction penalties, such as jail time and fines, will depend on which schedule the drugs fall under. Penalty severity will also depend on whether an individual simply possessed the drugs or also had the intent to distribute them.

If you are facing drug charges in Pennsylvania, you can depend on our experienced lawyers to understand the complexities of the court system and the different levels of drug charges. Our local expertise can help you protect your rights and seek the best solution for your situation.

The Criminal Process

The attorneys at Buzgon Davis Law Offices have extensive experience with the criminal process, so you can trust us to advocate for you and guide you through each stage. While procedures may vary by county, the process generally follows these steps:

  1. An individual is arrested and charged with a crime.
  2. During preliminary arraignment or first appearance, the individual is informed of the charges against them and the date for their preliminary hearing. Bail is set.
  3. A preliminary hearing, where individuals can challenge a case’s basic elements and seek its dismissal, takes place.
  4. Formal arraignment, where individuals hear the charges on the official charging document, is scheduled.
  5. The charged individual enters a plea of guilty or not guilty.
  6. A criminal trial proceeds for individuals who choose to enter a not-guilty plea.
  7. An individual is sentenced after a guilty plea or a trial verdict.
  8. Individuals can exercise their appeal rights if unsatisfied with the guilty plea or verdict.
