Types of Drug Crimes in North Carolina

Our lawyer has the know-how and skill to take on cases involving all kinds of drug crime charges. 

These include but are not limited to:

  • Possession: As one of the most common drug crimes, this involves knowingly possessing illegal drugs. A possession charge’s severity will depend on the amount and type of drug.
  • Distribution: This involves selling and/or delivering illegal drugs to another. Both street-level dealers and those involved in larger-scale drug operations can face this charge. 
  • Trafficking: Similar to distribution, trafficking refers to transporting illegal drugs into North Carolina from another state or country or the sale of large quantities of drugs within the state. 
  • Manufacturing: This involves producing or cultivating illegal drugs. Examples include operating a meth lab or growing marijuana. 
  • Prescription drug fraud: As opioid addiction and prescription drug abuse rise, this offense is becoming more common. It can include forging prescriptions or obtaining medication from illegal sources.

The Penalties for Drug Crimes in North Carolina

The severity of drug crime penalties generally depends on the schedule and quantity of drugs. A conviction for low-level misdemeanor offenses for things like possession can result in months of jail time. On the other hand, felony drug convictions for selling or trafficking drugs can come with years-long prison sentences. 

Beyond sentencing, drug crime convictions can have a significant impact on your personal and professional life. A criminal record can make it difficult to obtain employment or housing, as well as restrict you from receiving government benefits.
