Have You Been Arrested For Suspicion Of A Drug Offense?
Getting in trouble for illegal drugs in North Dakota can be confusing at best and shocking at worst, especially when law enforcement has overstepped their boundaries. While criminal justice policies and the penalties for drug-related charges for possession, possession with intent to distribute or sell, possession of drug paraphernalia, manufacture of drugs, importation and other charges are constantly changing, they remain costly. Convictions for drug arrests can result in a wide range of hefty penalties from high fines, property forfeiture, incarceration, reputation damage and job loss to a criminal record following you around.
