Drug Charges Archives

Why is right to privacy an important issue to address in drug defense cases?

When it comes to enforcing state and federal drug laws, law enforcement has a lot of power. Law enforcement officers have the power to determine who looks suspicious, when a search is appropriate and when there is enough evidence to arrest a suspect. This power can be easily abused, and those who have been charged with a drug crime on the basis of an abuse of police power should work with an experienced attorney to protect their rights.

Will DOJ 'get-tough' policy increase federal drug prosecutions?

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has a reputation as a drug warrior. He is on record as having once said he thought the Ku Klux Klan was: "OK until I found out they smoked pot." He insists he was joking, but more recent statements reinforce the view that he holds a get-tough attitude when it comes to prosecuting individuals charged with drug crimes.

Can you be tested for marijuana during a DUI stop?

More and more states across the country are entertaining the idea of legalizing marijuana, whether for medical purposes or recreationally. As marijuana consumption has moved from the shadows and into the mainstream, serious questions are being raised about how to police it and how to enforce it. However, there are also questions being raised on how to track its impact in cases involving driving while under the influence.

With new state law comes an end to marijuana decriminalization efforts

With the current legislative term nearing its end, it can safely be said that the last few months have been anything but dull in the Tennessee General Assembly. Indeed, the state Senate and House of Representatives have been busy debating and voting on legislation covering everything from school bus safety and rural broadband access to road funding and school vouchers.

Bill makes it easier to target suppliers in drug overdose deaths

Guns don't kill people. People kill people. That's a common argument Second Amendment supporters use to counter gun control efforts. As we noted in a post last month, some use a somewhat similar argument reacting to efforts to crack down on suppliers in drug overdose deaths. The case they seek to make is that the person responsible for the death is the user, not the supplier.

Drug charges dismissed. How good would that be?

It is likely safe to say that anyone facing a drug charge in the Franklin jurisdiction would be happy if they could see the charges dismissed. Whether that can happen is something that no attorney can guarantee. Every drug-related charge is serious, and what outcome might be possible depends on the circumstances of your case. The best assessment of such matters involves consulting an experienced attorney.
