What are the penalties for marijuana drug crimes?

Since marijuana is becoming legalized in some states, it can be confusing to people as to whether their state has legalized it, under what circumstances it might be legal, and if they can still face allegations of drug crimes should they have the substance. Arkansas residents should know that they can still face criminal charges for marijuana. However, it is legal for medical use. Knowing the various situations in which they can be charged and the penalties is important. Those who have been arrested for marijuana-related charges must also seek legal help to lodge a defense.

In Arkansas, drug crimes are taken very seriously with harsh penalties for those who are convicted of them. The circumstances will inevitably vary with every case. For example, a person might be arrested with a minimal amount that was likely for personal use. Another might find him or herself in trouble with the law with an amount that is significant and is believed to have been earmarked for sale or distribution. Regardless, those who are placed under arrest for drug crimes should make sure they have a strong defense in place.

Being arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated in Arkansas can spark a litany of penalties and problems in the short and long-terms. Law enforcement is constantly watching the roads for drivers who are exhibiting what they believe to be behaviors consistent with intoxication and will not hesitate to make a traffic stop to investigate. When a person is subjected to a traffic stop and charged with DWI, there will be a great deal to think about. One of the most important factors in a case is to have a strong legal defense to combat the charges as strongly as possible. This is especially true if the person has previously been charged and convicted for DWI as the penalties grow worse for subsequent arrests and convictions.
