Drug Possession and Distribution
Unfortunately, drug abuse, both prescription and controlled substance, is a huge problem in the United States. Also unfortunate is the amount of drug users being arrested, charged and imprisoned rather than being given the treatment they need.
Drug related charges can range from minor offenses such as possession of a controlled substance to the severe, such as the manufacturing, distributing and delivering of drugs. Consequences for drug crimes are exceptionally harsh depending on past drug related offenses, the amount of drugs possessed and types of drugs possessed, sentences can vary greatly from fines all the way to state incarceration.
A drug related charge can be a mistake that lasts a lifetime. If the rights of the accused are not properly protected, long prison sentences, extensive fines, and felony convictions may occur.
