Drug charges are not anything to take lightly, as the state certainly will not. If you are facing a drug charge, whether it is simple possession or something more serious — such as intent to distribute, trafficking or manufacturing — a conviction can have long-term consequences. You may find yourself behind bars for months or years; you may find it difficult to obtain a decent job when all is said and done; you may find your reputation in the community destroyed.
When facing a drug charge, how you attack the matter from the get go is important. What you say to police could affect the outcome of your case.
