Distributing, transporting or selling drugs is a serious offense. This may relate to narcotics, marijuana or virtually any controlled substance (including prescription drugs). In Indiana, drug dealing is a felony offense which may be punishable by up to 50 years in prison, depending on the particular circumstances of the offense, the amount of drugs involved, the type of drugs, and where the crime occurred. Enhanced penalties may be imposed if the sale occurred on or near school property, a church, playground, or recreation center. Prior convictions may also result in increased penalties if the defendant is convicted.
