Drug Free Zone

A drug-free zone is a particular area specified in a state's drug offense laws. If an individual is arrested for the possession or distribution of a controlled substance within the drug-free zone, the penalties for the offense are enhanced (increased). Areas within a certain distance from a school are frequently designated drug-free zones.
