Arkansas man faces drug crimes for marijuana bushes at home

Although the nationwide debate as to whether marijuana should be legal or not removed a big chunk of the stigma associated with crimes related to the drug, it remains illegal in Arkansas except for medical purposes. Since that is the case, people are still facing drug crimes for involvement in marijuana. Regardless of the drug being treated more liberally in the U.S., it can result in jail time, fines and other penalties for those who sell and possess it. It is important not to forget that when there is an arrest and to have legal help to prepare a defense.

A Little Rock man was arrested because there were three large marijuana plants at his home. Law enforcement went to the residence and discovered the bushes of marijuana. There was also a location for it to dry and be stored. The man also had numerous firearms. As they collected the marijuana, it came to more than 100 pounds once it was tallied up. The man resides near a drug-free zone, so he faces charges related to that. He is also facing allegations of possessing drug paraphernalia, the weapons and the marijuana. He is charged with manufacturing more than 100 pounds of the drug.

Hard drugs like heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine are getting much of the attention today. Even prescription medications like Fentanyl and other legal opioids are viewed as a much larger issue than marijuana. This can lull people to sleep as to the serious nature of drug crimes related to marijuana cultivation and trafficking. If the allegations reach the felony level, there can be hefty penalties in the event of a conviction. Ignoring this reality is a mistake and a legal advocate is vital.

Since he had more than 100 pounds, it is possible that he will face felony charges. Combining that with the weapons and other allegations and he is facing significant fines and jail time if he is convicted. When dealing with high-level drug crimes, it is crucial to have experienced legal help. A law firm that knows how to formulate a defense against drug crimes large and small is one of the most important calls that a person can make after an arrest. Combating the charges is a must and a qualified lawyer can help.
