For drugs like heroin, cocaine, ecstasy or methamphetamines, even simple possession is considered to be a felony by the state of North Carolina. Felonies are punishable by at least one year in prison.
On the other hand, possession of small amounts of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia are only considered misdemeanors, which can carry lighter penalties but still adversely affect your future. For these light charges, we may be able to help you enroll in a diversionary program. Programs of this nature require you to perform community service or agree to take certain classes. In exchange, your charges may be dropped.
