Legal Counsel for Clients Facing Drug Possession Charges
Cocaine is generally found in one of two forms, powder cocaine and crack cocaine. Both are produced by a chemical derivation process that harvests the substance from the leaves of the coca plant. Powder cocaine is generally snorted or dissolved and injected, while crack cocaine, a concentrated, crystalized form of the drug is usually smoked. Regardless of the form, cocaine is highly addictive and possession of the drug is prohibited in all 50 states.
Under Illinois law, possession of cocaine is a Class 1 felony and penalties are dependent upon the amount of the drug found. Possession of up to 100 grams is punishable by up to five years in prison and up to $200,000 in fines, and the penalties increase from there. A person found in possession of 900 grams or more faces up to 50 years in prison and the equivalent of the cocaine’s street value in fines. As with all drug possession charges, distribution and the intent to deliver can dramatically increase the severity of the charges, up to a Class X felony.
