State to consider roadside drug testing policy

Police officers who suspect a driver is operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol already have several roadside testing options. Police can administer both field and breath tests under certain circumstances when they stop a driver, and the legislature has approved bills that might allow officers to conduct similar testing for drugs in the future.

The types of drug crimes you need to know

There are many kinds of drug crimes that you can be accused of today, and the line between them can be slim. It's important to know the charges you could be facing in the future, so you can decide the best way to defend yourself with the help of your attorney. Each of these crimes could be penalized differently, so the key is to argue your defense against the crimes to try to lower your charges or have them dismissed.

Drug charges are not limited to drugs

Everybody knows the drugs that are illegal like cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines. However, what you may not know is that drug charges can go much further than the drugs themselves. Drug paraphernalia charges are levied whenever police seize items that are associated with the use or production of drugs. This can include something as blatant as a dirty syringe or as innocuous as a teaspoon. It all depends upon the context of the search and seizure of the items.
