The War on Drugs is Real and Serious. It is important to contact a Minnesota Drug Defense Attorney. Drug charges today are pursued aggressively at the state and federal level. This is contrary to the belief by many people that drug use is a “victimless crime.” The federal government continues to see drug use as directly linked to violent crime, and is leading a widespread war on drugs. The government also determines success by numbers of arrests made and the amount of drugs seized.
Many people view drug crimes as minor offenses due to the popularity of drugs, leading them to underestimate the seriousness of drug charges. But don’t be fooled. Most states have strict sentencing guidelines – including prison time for drug trafficking, drug possession, drug distribution and drug manufacturing.
In addition, convictions for narcotics distribution, narcotics manufacturing, narcotics possession or prescription fraud, all carry stiff penalties, including prison time. In fact, conviction on any drug charges, even a marijuana possession charge, can result in a criminal record that must be disclosed on an employment application.
And if you are facing drug charges and the federal government is involved, the matter is very serious. Even if the charges are originally handled by your state, they can ultimately be handed to federal authorities.
Obtaining drug convictions is the sole purpose of an agency of the federal government. Federal agents often use high pressure tactics to negotiate plea bargains, and they are experts in obtaining confessions that can in prison time for you. Federal convictions also carry lengthy, mandatory prison sentences based on federal sentencing guidelines. And under federal law, those convicted are required to fulfill 85 percent to 90 percent of their sentence without any chance of parole.
