Law enforcement in Spokane and across the United States remain committed to apprehending and prosecuting those they believe committed drug crimes. Those who are arrested on drug charges can face serious penalties, including prison time.
A recent reported drug bust in Moses Lake netted authorities almost 100 alleged marijuana plants. Grant County's Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team (INET) also seized 50 pounds of alleged processed marijuana, 10 firearms and a silencer. The man who was at the home was charged with manufacturing marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. The man told investigators that he was considering becoming a licensed marijuana grower.
When a person is arrested for drug possession, it can feel like the entire world is against them. Drug charges including manufacturing, possession and intent to distribute are not tolerated in Washington, and prosecutors have not stopped their war on drugs. If a person is found to have a large quantity of drugs on them in Washington, they may face trafficking charges which can include years in prison. Those who have been charged with a drug crime may not know where to begin to defend themselves. A criminal defense attorney can help their client tell their side of the story. They can help their client's story be seen in the best possible light and they can also bring up evidence that has not been considered.
Drug charges can be serious and lead to prison time and fines. No one wants these charges on their permanent record, which makes working with a criminal defense attorney all the more important.
