Maryland Drug Defense Lawyer
Drug-related charges are a serious matter that requires professional guidance of an experienced Baltimore drug defense attorney. At DRA e-Law, our goal is to help you avoid conviction if it’s possible or reduce your sentence and minimize consequences if conviction is inevitable.
Types of Drug Charges
Maryland is tough when it comes to stopping drug-related crimes. It used to be one of the top-ranked states for the number of marijuana-related arrests. The punishment for drug crimes ranges from a fine to imprisonment, depending on what kind of substance you were arrested for, how much of it was found and whether you’ve been convicted before. DRA e-Law can help you build your defense if you were arrested under the following charges:
- Possession of Drugs
- Possession of Drug Paraphernalia
- Distribution of Drugs
- Drug Manufacturing
- Obtaining Drugs by Fraud
Drugs include such controlled dangerous substances as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, ecstasy, as well as regulated prescription medications that are subject to abuse (Xanax, Vicodin, OxyContin, etc.).
If You Get Arrested on Drug Charges
If you get arrested, don’t talk to the police until you get a lawyer. Talking won’t make the charges go away and may give prosecution additional grounds to prove your guilt. Even if you think the arrest is a mistake, talk to your lawyer first.
