Law enforcement has been passing out drug charges in multitudes for decades. Police are eager to charge and judges are prepared to convict individuals in an effort to continue the costly “War on Drugs” that started in the early 1970s. Even with all the news coverage of the “drug epidemic” and how the police and the courts favor treatment over prosecution, this only happens once you are arrested.
In an effort to pursue these charges, police may violate an individual’s civil liberties by making illegal stops, performing illegal searches and seizures, and racial profiling. If you have been charged, you are facing jail time and fines. Convictions can also affect many aspects of your life, including your liberty, your employment, your driving privileges and your eligibility for college or financial aid. Although possession of small amounts of marijuana has been decriminalized, even getting a ticket for possession can lead to drastic consequences.
