Delivery or Possession of a controlled substance with the intent to deliver is a very serious felony offense.  This drug offense is also referred to as MFG/DEL Cocaine or MFG/DEL Heroin.  The crime is charged under 720 ILCS 570/401 [509] [13009] [509500] [509610] [509620] [509690] [509720] [5097300] [5097500] [11996].  The most frequent charges for possession with intent to deliver involve the delivery or possession with intent to deliver of heroin or cocaine.  Under Illinois State law, there is no distinction between powder cocaine and crack cocaine.  This is not the case in federal court where crack cocaine is punished more severely. Other less common charges include the sale of drugs such as ecstasy, LSD, morphine or other narcotics. Drug cases falling under 720 ILCS 570/401 can land a person in prison for up to 60 years.  As one would imagine, the greater the weight of the cocaine or heroin delivered, the greater the possible prison sentence.  The most common categories of drug weight are 15+grams, 100+grams, 400+grams and 900+grams.
