Understanding North Carolina drug laws can be complicated. Here we’ll explain drug laws in NC and what you should do if you’ve been charged with a drug crime.

While federal law outlaws many drugs and controlled substances , individual states municipalities often have their own regulations. These regulations determine how local law enforcement will respond to different drug crimes.

For this reason, if you are charged with a drug-related offense, it is important to understand the specific laws in the state where you live. For instance, drug laws in NC are, in many cases, more stringent than those in other states, and include harsh penalties.
