Don’t Let Drug Charges Define Your Future
America has always had a complicated relationship with drugs. After decades of zero-tolerance policies that filled our nation’s prisons, states have begun to decriminalize and even legalize certain drugs like marijuana. Meanwhile, opioid and heroin abuse have become a deadly public health crisis threatening nearly every community in the U.S.
Although the war on drugs has changed over time, it is far from over. And if you are facing drug charges — even seemingly minor charges — you risk becoming a casualty of that war. That’s why you need the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney like those at the Missouri DWI & Criminal Law Center.
What Drug Charges Are You Facing?
Our firm can help you fight or otherwise resolve nearly any type of drug charges, including:
- Drug possession (marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, etc.)
- Possession with intent to distribute
- Drug trafficking
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Drug buy-and-bust sting operations
- Enhancements related to selling near a school or while in possession of a firearm
Jurisdictions throughout Missouri are increasingly utilizing drug courts and other alternatives to traditional prosecution. When possible, we will help you take advantage of whichever alternatives will be most beneficial to you.
A Note To Students And Parents
Teenagers do risky things, including trying drugs. If you are the parent of a teenager caught doing drugs, punishment at home may be appropriate. But when the law gets involved, the consequences can be far too harsh.
For a high schooler or early college student, even a small marijuana charge can leave them ineligible for school admission, student loans, scholarships and other critical resources. Because of this, taking a plea deal is not really a reasonable option. Instead, you need the help of a lawyer who can protect your child’s future.
