I Have a Question Dealing With Drugs and Jail Time…..?

Question by Megan: I have a question dealing with drugs and jail time…..?
A family member of mine was arrested for having possession sched u/20 grams of canibus, possession sched II substance, possession sched IV substance, and possession drug paraphernalia. The possessions are weed, xanax, somas, lordtabs, and a pipe. She has previous charges for drug related things involving pills, and she is a three time felon. I want to know what “sched” means and what her sentence might be. I live in Florida.

Best answer:

Answer by Steve D
sched = schedule – the FDA has different schedules or lists of drugs with a schedule 1 drug the least potent/dangerous and as such are more controlled as you move up the schedule. She is most likely looking at some decent jail time as a three-time felon but the actual sentence will depend on the judge, whether she can plea bargain down, etc.

Restaurant’s Unusual Rehabilitation Approach – Restaurant Has Unusual Staff – as part of the news series by GeoBeats. A restaurant in Lake Worth, Florida employs former drug addicts as an adjunct to a variety of other rehabilitation practices. Doctor Robert Moran, who owns Moran’s Italian Burger Bistro along with the nearby drug rehabilitation clinic, Wellington Retreat said: “It occurred to me that we were missing something in our program, and that was the occupational piece,” Moran said his patients were having trouble finding and keeping a job. Just under half of the employees are also patients at Wellington Retreat, and 31 out of 36 suffer from mental illness. Employees at the Burger Bistro might get second and third chances if they come to work under the influence, because of the nature of the establishment. In another example of out-of-the-box rehabilitation practice, “Real Men Crochet” is a program started in 2008 for inmates at the Lebanon Correctional Institute in Ohio where they are allowed a crochet needle and yarn in order to create hand made crafts for donation. The hats, mittens, scarves and blankets knitted by these murderers and felons are all donated to charities including Veterans Hospitals, and homeless shelters among others.
