Illinois upholds very harsh drug trafficking laws. Depending on the type and amount of substance in question, offenders may face a misdemeanor or felony charge. However, no matter what the drug in consideration happens to be, trafficking even very small amounts of it can earn you a fine of thousands of dollars and a jail sentence of several years or more.

Marijuana is the only illegal drug whose trafficking may warrant only a misdemeanor. If you are caught trafficking less than 2.5 grams of this substance, you will be charged with a misdemeanor and will face a fine of up to $1,500 and up to 6 months in jail. However, sale and delivery of more than 2.5 grams is a felony. If you are convicted of trafficking more than 2.5 grams of marijuana, then you could face years in jail and a fine of tens of thousands of dollars.
Controlled Substance Trafficking
The trafficking of other controlled substances is considered felonious and offenders face very serious penalties. If you are caught selling and/or delivering cocaine, heroin, morphine, LSD, or methamphetamines, then you will be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars and could be jailed for decades.
