Cocaine is a drug that is obtained from the leaves of the coca plant. Cocaine is classified as a Schedule II substance under the North Carolina Controlled Substances Act and is therefore considered one of the most dangerous types of drugs. Penalties for cocaine-related offenses are consequently harsh. A defendant may face felony charges for the possession, distribution, trafficking, manufacturing or sale of cocaine. Depending on the amount found in the defendant's possession or involved in a trafficking-related offense, the court may enforce penalties ranging from 45 days in jail all the way to 219 months in prison and fines of up to $250,000. Federal penalties for cocaine-related offenses may be more severe.
