Marijuana or cannabis is treated as a misdemeanor, whereas cocaine, heroine, prescription drugs, are typically treated as felonies. However, when it comes to dealing drugs, if you’re selling any type of drug, it is classified as a felony whether it’s cannabis, cocaine, heroine, or any type of prescription drug. However, the penalties are less, depending on what type of drug one is accused of dealing, and the quantity that one is accused of dealing, as well.
