amount of drugs found in your possession. The Drug Enforcement Agency

medications that an individual may use with intent to sell by the schedules

What Are The Penalties for The Illegal Sale of Controlled Substances in Illinois?
Varying degrees of penalties are assigned to the sale and distribution
of highly illegal chemicals and drugs such as heroin, cannabis, methamphetamines,
as well as specific over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs.
You might be charged with a potential drug sale crime if you were arrested
for selling prescription drugs and possessing fraudulent or illegal prescription
notes. You may also be charged with intent to sell if you have above-normal
amounts of over-the-counter medications, such as pain medications or cough
syrups, which contain ingredients that can be used to manufacture other
illegal drugs, such as meth.
Is Marijuana Legal in Illinois?
Marijuana has been "legalized" in the state of Illinois, but
its sales and production are still heavily regulated. While personal possession
is generally legal for people over 21, production, sales, and transportation
of large amounts still carry similar penalties to before legalization.
Any amount over 30 grams of marijuana or 500 milligrams of pure THC is
considered possession with the intent to sell, which is illegal. You must
have a state-issued license to sell marijuana and comply with all local
and county laws.
