Penalties for Oxycontin Abuse in Massachusetts

Since Oxycontin has a large amount of oxycodone, it is classified as a Schedule II drug under the Controlled Substances Act. It is an opioid that is used to reduce constant pain. In Massachusetts, Oxycontin is known as a Class B drug.

Possession of Oxycontin

If you are arrested for Oxycontin possession, then you may be facing up to a year in jail and fines of $1,000. If this is your second offense, then you may be facing 2 years in jail and increased fines.

Possession with Intent to Distribute Class B Substance, Oxycontin

If you are caught selling Oxycontin or police find a large amount of Oxycontin and packaging material or cash, then you may be facing increased consequences. Your charges will depend on the amount sold, but a first offense may involve penalties of up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. Subsequent accusations will usually be more severe. Learn more about Oxycontin distribution charges by reviewing MA General Law Chapter 94C Section 32A.

What are the effects of Oxycontin?

Abusing Oxycontin can have both short term and long term effects. Short term effects include slowed breathing, nausea, sedation, dizziness, vomiting, mood swings, and headaches. The most dangerous of these effects is respiratory depression (slowed breathing), which may lead to death. The long-term effect of Oxycontin is tolerance, which means that users continually need larger doses of Oxycontin to continue achieving the same effects. Once the patient discontinues Oxycontin use, they may face severe discomfort through the withdrawal process.
