Couple arrested for marijuana drug crimes and other charges

It is important for Arkansas residents to realize that despite the ongoing national debate as to whether marijuana should be illegal or not, it is still against the law in Arkansas. People who are caught in acts that law enforcement believes to be related to its cultivation and sale will face charges for that. When placed under arrest for marijuana or any drug crimes, one of the main factors in the case's outcome is having a strong legal defense. Immediately after the arrest, this is the first call that should be made.

A man and a woman were arrested for having marijuana plants and drugs in their apartment. The 32-year-old man and the 28-year-old woman are also facing charges because there were two children, ages 6 and 3, at the residence. The man was stopped in his vehicle by law enforcement because he did not use a turn signal when he was driving. He is on parole. Traces of marijuana were found in the vehicle. He also had significant cash. When his apartment was searched, it was alleged that marijuana plants were found. There was also a loaded handgun.

When facing allegations of drug crimes, regardless of the level of charges and the category in which the drugs are placed (marijuana is Schedule VI while heroin is Schedule I), it is crucial to have legal help to formulate a defense. This is especially relevant when there are other charges along with the drug allegations such as possession of a loaded gun and endangering the welfare of a minor. Since drug charges can lead to jail time, fines and other penalties, the defense is key.

In this instance, a man was stopped in his car by law enforcement and marijuana was found in the vehicle. When his apartment was searched, plants were allegedly found along with a loaded gun and two children. This has resulted in multiple charges being filed. Given the situation, he and the woman who was arrested must protect themselves by contacting an attorney as soon as possible to prepare for a defense.
