Getting arrested and convicted of drug possession in Illinois, or anywhere, can cause serious complications in your life. It can derail your education, put you in jail and leave a permanent negative mark on your record. It doesn’t matter what drug you are accused of possessing — heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs, even marijuana. The pain of conviction vastly outweighs whatever momentary thrills the drugs provide.
