Marijuana, Crystal Meth, Heroin, Cocaine
While many drugs are illegal, the amount and type of drug can make a substantial difference in the charges. A small amount of marijuana, for example, is treated with less seriousness by the prosecutor than a large amount. It is important in any drug charge case to have a lawyer who knows how to investigate the charge, review the evidence and challenge the evidence itself (the amount, for example) and the way the evidence was obtained.
Possession, Selling, Manufacturing, Growing, Trafficking
Possession may mean the person arrested had a small amount for personal use. A larger amount of drug might be seen by the prosecutor as evidence of selling. Manufacturing crystal meth (methamphetamines) or growing marijuana is a far more serious charge, but will probably be in state court. In cases of large manufacturing and growing operations, the charge may go to federal court.
The most serious charge is trafficking, transporting illegal drugs across state lines and national boundaries. There is usually a larger network involved as well as a larger quantity of drugs. Those case are tried in federal court. William J. Vasquez is licensed in all North Carolina state courts and all federal courts in North Carolina.
Any drug charge is serious and can damage your future opportunities and your reputation.
