The Consequences Of Drug Charges In North Carolina

A Brief Review Of North Carolina Drug Crimes
While any drug charge is serious, understanding some of the processes that you have ahead of you can help you feel more in control of your situation. The state specifically prohibits the manufacture, sale, simple possession, possession with intent, and delivery of these and other controlled substances:
- Fentanyl – often deadly when abused, though useful for medical applications
- Heroin – a rising cause of overdoses in North Carolina and elsewhere
- Marijuana – still illegal in North Carolina for all uses
- Other prescription drugs that, without prescriptions, carry the same penalties as always-illegal drugs
Violating these laws can lead to extensive fines and jail time, which can increase, depending on the amount of the substance and other circumstances.

We aggressively protect our clients no matter what they are up against, including charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.
