Teenagers may not always exercise the best judgment when it comes to drugs. They may be curious about what it's like to be "high," which could lead to experimentation. Other young people are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when a drug offense takes place. Unfortunately, prosecutors in Maryland will not go easy on anyone they suspect committed a drug crime, no matter what that person's age is.
Being convicted of drug charges can have a negative impact on a young adult's life for years to come. Not only will the person face the possibility of fines and jail time, but their reputation may also be on the line. Whether the substance at issue is illicit prescription drugs, heroin, marijuana, or any other type of drug, being accused of drug possession, drug manufacturing, or drug trafficking is a serious situation.
