What are the most common drug charges?

On Behalf of | Sep 1, 2017 | Drug Crimes |

At the Roberts Law Group, we represent North Carolina residents in their criminal proceedings. We regularly defend individuals against allegations involving a wide variety of crimes, but some of the most common allegations we see involve illegal drugs. In addition, in the category of drug crimes, we tend to see the same three allegations relating to drugs over and over again.

Here are the three most common drug charges we defend North Carolina residents against:

  • Drug possession allegations: It’s illegal to possess certain substances like marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine. It’s also illegal to possess prescription medications without a prescription.
  • Drug sales allegations: North Carolina residents are in violation of the law whenever they are selling a controlled substance. Police often create sting operations to gather proof and evidence against someone they suspect of selling drugs. They might send an undercover officer to meet a suspected drug dealer. If the alleged drug dealer agrees to sell drugs and makes a transaction, then he or she could get arrested and accused.
  • Driving while intoxicated by a controlled substance allegations: Most people accused of driving while intoxicated are intoxicated by alcohol. However, some are intoxicated by a controlled substance. It can be more difficult for police to prove that someone was high on drugs, but if an individual exhibits signs of intoxication during a traffic stop and police find him or her in possession of drugs, it could result in an arrest and charges.

It doesn’t matter what kind of drug crime you were accused of — and it doesn’t matter the circumstances and evidence surrounding the arrest. If you have been charged with a drug-related offense, you have the right to defend yourself against the allegations in court.
