Portland Drug and Alcohol Crimes Attorney

Portland drug and alcohol crimes attorneyIn recent decades, drug laws have expanded and evolved so that “drug law” has now become its own complicated legal field. DUI and DWI laws are more technical and scientific, and the legal issues involved continue to generate controversy. Drug and alcohol-related crimes now include drug conspiracy, trafficking, and marijuana cultivation as well as the more familiar DUI, sales, and possession charges. The penalties for each drug and alcohol crime depend on the nature of the crime itself – were weapons, violence, or injuries involved? – the suspect’s prior convictions, and the quantity of illegal drugs involved.
