All drug charges need effective representation

The impact that drug charges are going to have on your life really depends on the caliber of charges that you're facing. For example, there is a large difference between simple marijuana possession charges, which could just net you a fine and four months behind bars, and drug trafficking charges, which could lead to $150,000 fines and 12.5 years of jail time. Though both are felonies, the ramifications are not the same.

It's especially important to think of the big picture when facing felony charges. They stay on your record and can make it impossible for you to do some things -- like getting certain jobs -- because felons have to give up some rights. For example, those convicted of felonies are not allowed to own firearms, so any job that requires you to carry a firearm will be denied to you.

Additionally, charges can be changed by aggravating factors. For example, if you're facing drug charges and you had a weapon with you at the time, you may also be facing weapons charges. You can be convicted on multiple counts at the same time, which drastically changes your sentence in some cases.

As you can see, there are many different factors to consider, but it's really important to have strong legal representation for any level of charges, from possession charges to more complex felonies. You deserve a fair trial, and you need to know all of your legal defense options to be sure that you get one.
