Strong Defense Against Possession And Sale Charges
Possessing any amount of any type of drug classified as illegal can lead to serious criminal charges in Minnesota. For example, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine are types of illegal drugs that can lead to being charged with a felony.

Conviction Has Serious Consequences
A drug conviction brings forth many serious repercussions. There are many collateral consequences in addition to the worry of time in prison or high fines. You could lose your job, lose the right to possess a firearm, have a hard time finding a place to live or even face issues with your immigration status if you have emigrated from another country.
The conviction would show up in any situation that would require you to have a background check. Maybe you want to coach your child’s sports team or rent a new apartment. Most likely, a background check will be necessary because people are trusting you with their children. As soon as the background check comes back with a conviction, you may not be able to be the coach, disappointing yourself and your child, or rent that apartment that’s closer to your work. This could also be a potential roadblock in becoming a licensed professional.
