Here are some example drugs for each of New Mexico’s Drug schedules:
In order for you to be fully convicted, the prosecution in your trial must prove that you possessed these substances with the intent to sell or otherwise distribute them. If this cannot be proven, then you could be charged with nothing more than simple possession, which carries more relaxed penalties.
