About Penalties for Massachusetts Drug Offenses

  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Drug Rehabilitation

Drugs that are commonly abused include the following:

Prescription drugs may be stimulants, depressants, or opioids, and are usually classified as a Schedule II or Schedule III drug, according the Controlled Substances Act.
