Definition Of Drug Crime 

"Drug crime" is a term that refers to a crime involving Violation of laws. There may be several different types of drug crimes, depending on what the accused was trying to carry when he was arrested. For example, when a person is arrested and sells drugs, but he intends to use the drugs on his own, the judge will relatively lightly punish this type of crime after the defendant's conviction. If the person was planning to sell the drug they were carrying, the judge's sentence would be relatively heavy after the defendant was convicted. 

San Diego City is considered by most to have the strictest anti-drug laws in California. If you are arrested in a drug case, you need to understand how San Diego State law defines "prohibited goods." 

What Is Contraband? 

Under San Diego law, the term contraband includes both legal and illegal drugs. 

For example, the following are legal contraband: 

- Heroin 
- OxyContin 
- Ambien 
- Vicodin 

Legal drugs are considered illegal if a doctor does not prescribe them. Although San Diego is less harsh on defendants who hold contraband but do not plan to sell, defendants in such cases may still be convicted of felony and face jail sentences ranging from one to thirty years.
