The long-time “war on drugs” in this country has not eliminated the availability of banned substances such as:
- Crack cocaine
- Methamphetamines (“meth”)
- Prescription narcotics obtained without prescriptions
- Drug paraphernalia
Criminal cases often involve charges of drug possession or possession with intent to distribute. Penalties can be extraordinarily harsh for a conviction of drug trafficking. This type of crime is often associated with a suspect’s drug use, as well. In other cases, there is a strong financial incentive that many who distribute or traffic drugs become caught up in.
