Many people do not see marijuana possession as a crime. It is a controlled substance that has a low risk for dependency and state law treats it accordingly. While marijuana distribution and possession charges are less serious than other drug crimes, however, that does not mean they should be taken lightly. A North Carolina man and woman are facing a number of criminal charges after police found marijuana plants in their home and garden.

Drunk driving is a serious problem in North Carolina. All too often, people think they can drive home after drinking, when in reality, they should not be allowed anywhere near a vehicle.
