I've been charged with the distribution of drugs: What now?

Laws regarding the distribution or trafficking of drugs in the state of Maryland penalize those who sell, transport and illegally import unlawful controlled substances. These substances include illegal drugs such as methamphetamines, heroin, cocaine and marijuana. Punishments for the distribution of drugs vary depending on multiple factors, such as the drug amount involved, the type of drug, the geographic area in which the distribution took place and if you were targeting children.

Prescription drug offenses are aggressively prosecuted in Maryland

From 2007 to 2012, over 40 percent of deaths caused by drug overdose in Maryland included the use of at least one prescription opioid. The consequences of overdose - whether intentional or accidental - are obvious. But there are also legal consequences when it comes to the use, distribution, purchase, sale and possession of prescription drugs - even when the prescription is your own.

Harsh penalties await those who are convicted of drug crimes in Maryland

When it comes to a drug conviction in Maryland, various penalties come into play. The consequences of a conviction depend on the amount and type of drug, if there were extenuating circumstances such as trying to sell the drugs versus just use them, and whether this is your first offense of if you have been charged with a drug offense in the past.
