10 facing federal drug charges for shipping marijuana

On Oct. 19, New York law enforcement officers reported that 10 gang members from the Bronx were taken into custody for drug crimes. They were reportedly accused of shipping thousands of pounds of marijuana to New York from California. Authorities said the marijuana had an estimated value of $22 million.

Prescription painkillers contribute to the opioid crisis

The media has been widely reporting on the current epidemic facing the United States in terms of addiction and overdose deaths due to heroin use. What has been reported less widely, however, is the link between prescription painkillers and how their use may lead to addiction. Many people who are currently addicted to opioids, including the illegal drugs heroin and its synthetic counterparts such as fentanyl, may have become addicted first to a prescription painkiller. This is an important area to clarify and explore because beyond the high risk of death by overdose, an addiction that culminates in illegal drug use can lead to arrest and the potential for a conviction that may carry a heavy prison sentence.

U.S. drug war alive and well

The U.S. drug war is still alive and well in New York and across the nation, according to a report by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The agency reports that overall drug arrests increased by 5.63 percent in 2016, with 1.57 million people taken into custody. That number is more than triple the combined arrest total for all violent crimes. Nearly 85 percent of all drug violation arrests were for drug possession.

When drug charges result from an unfair search and seizure

Drug charges can result from a number of different incidents. A sting, a routine traffic stop or an investigation may lead you to be charged with possession or another drug-related crime. Typically, to file such charges, law enforcement will perform a search and seizure to collect evidence against you. This practice, though typical, is controversial--and it may be unfairly performed. According to the United States Commission on Civil Rights, police in New York City perform thousands of stop and frisk or search and seizure procedures every year. The legality of such interactions is worth questioning, though, and there are a few things you should know if you have been subject to a search.
