Protect yourself if you're accused of selling drugs

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.

Minnesota to change drug offense sentencing guidelines

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.
