A New Breed of Drug Crimes

In the war on drugs, law enforcement officials have a new enemy to target: synthetic drugs. Synthetic drugs, also known as K2 or bath salts have come under increased scrutiny in the area, and law enforcement has indicated their intent to get such drugs off the streets by whatever legal means are available. As a result of this concentrated effort, many area residents will find themselves in need of a criminal defense attorney. For example, two Chicago area convenience store owners were recently charged with multiple offenses in connection with the sale of synthetic drugs.

 

The efforts of local law enforcement also resulted in other stores where items were seized surrendering those items and agreeing to sign onto a community protection agreement. However, in their zeal to rid the Chicago area of synthetic drugs, police will no doubt apprehend some people who are actually innocent of any criminal activity. That is where the efforts of a qualified and knowledgeable attorney can be extremely beneficial. An expert defense attorney can help to uphold the rights of those who have been falsely accused of selling or attempting to sell synthetic drugs.

Cook County Considers Clearing Some Drug Records, Not All

Drug Crimes

Traditionally, drug cases seemed very open and shut. If someone is found with a large manufacturing and delivery operation in Illinois for illegal drugs, then they face some serious legal consequences. Some aspects of drug crimes, however, may be changing.

The State Attorney of Cook County, Kim Foxx, wants to expunge certain crimes from people’s records. Convictions for marijuana are at the top of her list, but so are some crimes involving heroin and cocaine.
