Every day many North Carolinians are accused of drug crimes. Such crimes could range from mere possession of a small quantity of drugs to federal offenses including drug trafficking, drug distribution, drug conspiracies and drug manufacturing. Drug charges can involve various types of illegal substances, including marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy and illegally obtained prescription medications.
Drug charges are prosecuted seriously in North Carolina; however, that doesn't mean that everyone who is accused is automatically guilty. Two men are facing drug charges after unrelated arrests were recently conducted in Pender County, North Carolina. The first arrest involved a Wilmington man.
