It's easy enough to argue how misguided the "War on Drugs" is. When talking about marijuana in North Carolina, it's that much easier. Cannabis grows on a plant, and can be used unaltered by man. Its negative physiological effects are mild, and it certainly poses no greater threat to society than alcohol or tobacco.
Yet our federal and most state governments have chosen to make the mere possession of pot or weed illegal, with even greater penalties for its sale and cultivation. Trafficking marijuana can lead to mandatory minimum prison time and millions of dollars in fees. As a result of our government's crackdown on this harmless plant, great harm has befallen many, and may come to you if you face any kind of marijuana charge.

Raleigh Drug Diversion Program
Some first-time marijuana offenders may be eligible for a diversion program offered in Raleigh. Under the diversion program, you are granted a dismissal in exchange for taking drug classes. If you complete the drug classes, stay out of trouble for six months and pay the costs, the charges are dismissed.
Prosecutors agree to programs on a case-by-case basis. Your lawyer can help negotiate for your acceptance into the program, should you decide it is your best option.
