90 days is the normal sentence, if you pay the total fine up front. Seems like it was $730.00 plus 90 days and yes, they take you straight from court, handcuff you, attach the leg irons and walk you to jail in the line with the rest of the prisoners.

I heard they have increased the fine to 825.00 but you are right about the rest.

Im on probation for the same charge....I know.
No, I did NOT go to jail. I got a year, probated for 2 yrs, with diversion. If you mess up, you will do the time! I think this only applies to first time felons though. I did not have any fines, other than fees at P&P. Your punishment depends on your record really. This was my first felony and this is what I got. The probation is supervised.

it will get worse, of course. or some other drug will replace it, either illicit or a new and powerful abused prescription drug. it's the not the drugs themselves that are the problem, so much as the situations that create the mindset to continue to abuse them. as long as there are people who have that mindset, who value the escape and pseudo-coping mechanism provided by them over their own health, well-being, and freedom, there will be drug abuse of some kind. and enterprising addicts and criminals looking to profit from the situation will go so far as to create new drugs themselves when they must. as long as people continue to prefer an altered reality to their real lives, it will never, ever go away. that isn't a legal problem or a medical problem, but a cultural problem, rooted in the individual upbringing and society's tolerance and sympathy toward those who perpetuate it.
