The serious nature of drug trafficking charges

Violations of drug trafficking laws can carry serious potential penalties and consequences. As a result, individuals facing drug trafficking accusations and charges must be familiar with the legal options available to protect them. Criminal defense options range from challenging the facts as alleged by police to challenging police conduct or procedure.

While a couple bills in support of the drug have made their way to the Kansas Legislature, they stopped short of a debate in both the house and senate for various reasons. Those in support of legalization say the plant has less harmful effects than alcohol and can be used to provide relief for a variety of ailments. Meanwhile, opponents claim that marijuana use has a social cost, just like alcohol, and that federal law is clear on its prohibited status.

KS man's drug charges dismissed due to prosecutor misconduct

There are lots of ways to build an effective criminal defense. While telling your side of the story can always be valuable when facing criminal charges, the prosecution accusing a person of their drug crimes must follow due process and other regulations when collecting evidence in a criminal case. If the prosecution does not conduct their investigation according to law, it should be made known by the criminal defense.
