Distributing illegal drugs is one of the most serious drug crimes a person can commit. Possession is one thing, but issuing or selling controlled substances to other individuals is far more severe of an offense. Under Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 475, delivery of lesser substances such as marijuana or hydrocodone is still considered a Class C felony. Delivery of marijuana can also be a Class B felony, as is the distribution of oxycodone. Delivery of cocaine or methamphetamine is a Class B felony, and distributing heroin is a Class A felony.
