If there's anything that can get you into trouble quickly with the law, it's selling illicit drugs. Any kind of illegal drug being sold is illegal, even if the drug is legal in other states. For example, you can't sell marijuana in Minnesota, even though it's legal in Colorado. You also can't carry marijuana in Minnesota, even if you've purchased it in another state where it's legal.
If you're accused of a crime or are going to be arrested, it's important to know your Miranda rights and the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution. What are these rights granted to you?
As someone who may be facing a charge or conviction for drug offenses, you may be interested to know that the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission has decided to back shorter sentences for those who are convicted for lesser drug charges. Since these are new changes coming into effect, your attorney may need to discuss your case specifically with the court to make sure you get all the benefits from lighter sentencing guidelines.
When you're charged for the use or distribution of controlled substances within Minnesota, it's important to defend yourself. Each kind of drug charge has its own type of penalty that could result in substantial fines or fees, jail time or other punishments.
