Arrests for drug-related charges can be especially daunting for a number of reasons. There are often multiple law enforcement agencies involved, cooperating witnesses and informants and aggressive law enforcement tactics involved. In addition, the penalties for conviction of narcotics crimes can be draconian. If you’ve been charged with a drug-related offense it’s paramount that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible.

Narcotics-related criminal prosecutions typically rely on evidence collected by law enforcement personnel during the “search and seizure” of you or property within your control. The processes of collecting this evidence must comply with the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. It’s important to understand that in many instances – at some point in the collection and processing of the evidence critical to the prosecution – your Fourth Amendment rights were violated. As a result, the evidence is not admissible in court proceedings against you.

Sometimes, the government goes after the medical practitioner, other times they focus on the patient. In either situation, the defense lawyer needs to be very well versed in the drug laws and more and more we find that we need to also become well-versed in the medical and pharmacological issues in such cases.
