Association with the drug culture has always carried with it a certain social stigma.

Heroin is considered so dangerous, though, that no leniency is ever shown for those who have allegedly been in possession of the drug or who possessed it with the intent to sell. That is why, if you want to have a hope of having the charges against you dropped or lowered to a less significant drug charge, it behooves you to have an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer in Chicago such as Andrew M. Weisberg fighting for your rights at every juncture of your case.
