We Are Prepared To Fight For Your Rights After A Drug Crime Arrest
The Criminal Justice System Is Hard On Illegal Drug Users And Distributors
The “War on Drugs” over the past few decades in our country has often translated into unfortunate realities such as:
- An emphasis on arrests, trials, convictions and incarceration as deterrents to drug abuse.
- Heavy use of informants who were, themselves, charged with drug crimes, and made plea bargains that gave them strong incentives to “rat” on other people buying or using drugs among their circles of acquaintances.
- Rigid mandatory sentencing guidelines at the federal level that put many nonviolent users in prison for years.
The Demand For ‘Street Drugs’ Continues
Recreational use of marijuana and other drugs is an American tradition for many people. Roommates and family members often get caught in drug busts along with the actual users and distributors. Proving innocence in such cases can be tough. In quite a few impoverished urban neighborhoods, distribution of controlled substances is a last resort method for some underprivileged residents to obtain cash for necessities of life. Meanwhile, millions of Americans in all social classes struggle with dependency on narcotics brought on by legal use of prescription drugs.
What About Your Drug Charges?
Where does your case fit into this picture? Are you under investigation? Were you arrested? Have you been formally charged? Do you have reason to believe you may be suspected of a drug crime because of a spouse’s or roommate’s activities? Whatever your legal concern regarding any of these forbidden substances or paraphernalia, contact a defense attorney as soon as possible:
- Methamphetamines (“meth”)
- Cannabis extracts known as THC oils from Colorado or elsewhere
- Illegal substances in vaporizer pens
- Marijuana wax
Misdemeanor Or Felony?
The classification of your alleged drug crime as a misdemeanor or felony depends on factors such as quantities and possession versus distribution (or intent to deliver). Drug trafficking cases are serious federal criminal matters.
Regardless of how your case is initially labeled, a zealous defense attorney will seek every positive outcome attainable, including dismissal of charges, reduction of charges, reduction of penalties, lowering of charges from felony to misdemeanor level, probation and drug abuse treatment instead of jail time among various options.
