Drug possession charges need to be taken very seriously, and when it comes to college students, they should not be taken for granted. Drug charges can lead to major fines, jail time, community service, and other serious penalties. In addition, the circumstances of the drug possession charge can lead to expulsion or other major punishments from the university that a student is attending, potentially altering the course of that student’s academic career and adult life.
