Convictions For Controlled Substances Can Carry Harsh Penalties
It appears that sometime in the near future, marijuana will be legalized in North Carolina. However, as of today, it is still illegal to possess in any form. Drug crimes can vary in degree from misdemeanor possession of marijuana all the way up to felony trafficking charges. Whether you are being investigated for or are facing an arrest for possessing marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin or even someone else’s prescription meds, do not wait to start protecting your rights.

Drug Charges Typically Invoke Search And Seizure Law
Search and seizure law is invoked because drug arrests are usually made via traffic stops or search warrants of homes or other property. This area of the law can get rather complicated and is always contingent upon the facts of your particular case. At the more serious end of the spectrum, trafficking charges carry mandatory minimum prison sentences depending on what drug was possessed and how much of that particular drug was possessed. These are very serious cases that can carry substantial jail time.
