Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (PDP) charges often accompany Possession of Marijuana charges. North Carolina law actually mandates a greater punishment for PDP (as a class I) misdemeanor, as opposed to Possession of Marijuana (a class III misdemeanor). This illogical result serves as a simple example of the need for individuals to utilize an experienced lawyer to address such charges, as legal realities often do not equate with logic.
A Possession of Drug Paraphernalia conviction can create significant issues. Defendants face significant costs / fines, requirements from the court, probation, and active jail time. You may face the loss of employment due to the results of a conviction. Therefore, it's crucial to obtain a realistic assessment of your options immediately when charged with a drug offense.
