Drug & Weapons Charges in Bethesda, MD
Strong Defense Against Drug and Weapons Charges in Bethesda
The “War on Drugs” has changed over the years. Minor drug crimes are treated as more of a social issue with a movement towards treatment in lieu of incarceration. For example, in DC, they have decriminalized small amounts of marijuana for personal use. However, even small amounts of certain illegal drugs can cause tremendous damage to one’s career and financial prospects into the future. That is why it is so important to get the best criminal defense you can, no matter how serious or minor the charge may be.
Weapons charges are similar in many ways to drug charges. With drug charges, the sentencing possibilities change based on the type and amount of illegal narcotic. For example, possession of marijuana is a different type of crime than possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
With weapons charges, mere possession of a gun during the commission of a crime can lead to sentencing enhancements. The same may be true if the gun is unlicensed. Another weapons charge that may lead to sentencing enhancements is the charge of felon in possession of a weapon.
