Memphis residents who are facing an arrest for drug charges can feel confused and frightened. Drug crimes include a large variety of offenses including possession of a small amount of marijuana to transporting large amount of cocaine across state lines.
Drug crimes in Memphis can be serious offenses. The punishment for drug offenses usually depends on the amount and type of drugs involved but can lead to prison time, loss of a good professional and personal reputation and other serious consequences.
When authorities make an arrest they sometimes look to charge the suspects involved with whatever they can, even if they are not related to the reason they initially made the arrest. For example, if someone is arrested for drug possession but the authorities also find materials that could be used to make drugs, the authorities may also charge the suspect with other drug crimes such as drug manufacturing.
