Last week we discussed how Memphis residents who have been convicted of drug crimes can face tough penalties. Although drug crimes are fairly common in Memphis, they carry some stiff penalties depending on the type of drug.
Drug crimes vary from possession of marijuana to manufacturing large amounts of methamphetamines to transporting kilos of cocaine across the state lines. The penalties for these drug crimes vary on the type and amount of drug involved and can be a misdemeanor and a fine or prison time and thousands of dollars of fines. Besides the fines and prison time that a person can face for drug crimes, they can also face a ruined personal and professional reputation.
