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.
If you have a chronic medical condition or certain disorder, you may be like the thousands of Americans who are searching for alternatives to traditional treatment. In many states, these individuals find relief with medical marijuana, but, unfortunately, this is not yet an option for residents of Maryland.
Because you already have a felony conviction on your record, your latest arrest may have you concerned. In Maryland, like many states, the justice system has established mandatory sentences for repeat offenders, especially those convicted of drug crimes.
