    Resource for crime punishments?

    Discussion in 'Research' started by Sheriff Woody, Jul 27, 2014.

    I'm outlining a story that deals with the sale of illegal drugs and I'm curious to know if there is any online resource that says something to the effect of "possession of X drug is Y years in prison in Z state". Anything of the sort would be helpful.

    I figured I'd ask here before clogging my browser history with information on illegal drugs. It's research for a book, I tell ya! :angle:

    Excellent! Thank you kindly. :)

    If anyone knows of any more such resources out there, feel free to include them here. Might as well start building a one-stop-shopping database for those looking to write crime stories.

    http://www.findlaw.com < my professor recommends this one

    I'll look in my textbooks to see if there are any other ones that are specifically for drug related offenses.
