Combating Drug Charges In State And Federal Courts
While many states throughout the nation are passing laws that decriminalize marijuana, Tennessee laws regarding this drug’s use and possession have not changed. Judges strictly enforce these statutes. Whether you are an out-of-state visitor or long-time resident, you will be responsible for paying fines and may face jail time depending on the type of drug charge you receive.
By law, you are entitled to defend against these charges in court. You also have the right to retain an attorney. You don’t have to face this challenge alone.
