What are Imitation Drugs?
Exactly as they sound, “imitation drugs” are fake drugs often
sold by dealers to unsuspecting buyers in order to save money. This type
of scam usually targets naïve tourists. No matter if you are accused
of selling real drugs or imitation drugs, this is still an offense that
is punishable by law, and the police will not give you the benefit of
the doubt if they believe they have caught you selling imitation drugs.
A conviction for selling imitation drugs can bring the following penalties:
- Up to six months in jail
- Up to $1,000 in fines
- Possible probation
Selling imitation drugs isn’t the only offense that could result
in criminal charges; in fact, possessing or purchasing an imitation drug
is also considered a criminal offense, carrying with it even harsher penalties
of up to 1 year in jail and fines of up to $2,000. If you have been accused
of possessing or selling imitation drugs, it is imperative that you take
steps to protect your future by
