In Oklahoma, drug offenses are categorized into different levels based on the type and quantity of
drugs, as well as any prior convictions. Here is a general breakdown:

Simple Possession (Misdemeanor): Possession of a small amount of a controlled substance for
personal use is often considered a misdemeanor. Penalties may include fines, probation, or
mandatory drug education programs.

Possession with Intent to Distribute (Felony): If there is evidence indicating an intention to sell or
distribute drugs, the offense becomes a felony. The severity depends on factors like the type and
quantity of drugs involved.

Trafficking (Felony): Involves the illegal transportation of a large quantity of drugs. Penalties for
trafficking are severe, with mandatory minimum sentences and significant fines.

Manufacturing or Cultivation (Felony): The production of illegal drugs or cultivation of controlled
substances can lead to felony charges. Penalties vary based on the type and quantity of drugs

Drug Distribution Near Schools (Enhanced Penalty): Committing drug offenses within a certain
distance of schools or certain public areas often results in enhanced penalties.

Aggravated Offenses (Enhanced Penalty): Factors such as carrying a weapon during a drug crime
or having a previous drug conviction can escalate charges and lead to more severe penalties.

Prescription Drug Offenses (Varied): Misuse of prescription drugs, including illegal possession or
distribution, can result in charges ranging from misdemeanors to felonies.
