Opiate and Drug Addiction Crisis
While most people think it can never happen to them, drug addiction is a serious problem in our country. In fact, opiate addiction is now a national crisis. Drugs are everywhere. Despite the known dangers, heroin and other street drug use is at all time highs. In addition, prescription drugs (Schedule II drugs) are being abused more than ever. Seemingly, it is easier to get powerful narcotic pain medications than antibiotics. As a result, addiciton to prescription drugs is on the rise. Teenagers also have more access than ever to these drugs and get into real trouble, both legal and medical. So what can we do to help?
Caring, Compassionate Drug Lawyers Standing By to Help
The drug crime attorneys at Robert J. Reeves P.C. are aggressive, experienced trial lawyers. But we also know the “human side” of addiction. As a result, we do everything we can to help you with both your criminal case and medical issues. So how do we do our job? First, we get all of the State’s evidence and review it thoroughly. Because the burden of proof is on the State of North Carolina, we make sure they can prove their case. If not, we file Motions to either suppress certain evidence or, if serious errors, to dismiss your case completely. However, if their case is strong, we negotiate with the prosecutor to try and get an acceptable plea offer.
Either way, you make all choices and decisions on your case. Of course, we will explain and guide you through the process. And we will recommend what we think is the best course. However, you are always in charge. After all, it is your case and your life, and we work for you.

rather, we’re here to help you.
While many want to see marijuana legalized, it is still against the law to possess, grow, or sell in North Carolina. However, if caught with a small amount, a first time offender can usually complete a drug diversion course and have the charges dismissed. Although most marijuana arrests for possession are misdemeanors, larger amounts can become a felony. And any charge relating to growing or selling marijuana is a felony with mandatory prison time.
Even for a simple possession charge, call us to learn your options. We are here to get you through the process.
Because of the easy availability of prescription, or Schedule II, drugs, many people are getting addicted to pain medications. As a result, they often “doctor shop” or take friends and even family narcotic prescription pills. When they get caught, they are facing serious criminal penalties when what they really need is help. Despite the know opiate addiction crisis, many persons charged with this offense end up in prison. When arrested, call us immediately
Because these charges are so serious, you need our experience and compassion. Don’t worry. We are here for you.
Heroin, ecstasy, Meth
Even though we know the dangers of these powerful “street” or “rave” drugs, people still use them. Sadly, unlike prescription medications, you really don’t know what you are getting until it is too late. As a result, we are seeing many more fatal overdoses with these drugs. Due to ever increasing use, police are getting much more aggressive in making arrests. While we deal with the criminal charge, you focus on getting treatment for your addiction issues.
Although these drugs may seem safe, they are not. People get addicted and die everyday here in North Carolina.
