In Illinois, the penalties for drug charges can be severe. Drug charges are based upon quantity, intent to sell or distribute, and other factors such as weapons possession or use, evidence of sales activity (like possession of large quantities of cash), among various others. Possession with intent to deliver is considered a more serious offense and is thus punished more severely than simple possession as well.
