N.C. drug charges include charges for possession, possession with intent to deliver, manufacture or cultivation of controlled substances, trafficking, or drug paraphernalia. They also include drug crimes involving marijuana, exctasy, cocaine, or non-prescription controlled substances. A skilled N.C. drug charge attorney can have these charges dismissed or reduced under a variety of circumstances.
First, the police must have a valid reason to stop and a valid reason to search you, your vehicle, or the area you are located. If your consent to a search is not free and voluntary, you may have defenses. Further, an officer may under certain circumstances not exceed the scope of search that has been consented to and search other areas. Further, you may have defenses if the police cannot prove you were in possession of drugs. Contact a Charlotte attorney to defend your rights.
