Drug crimes are becoming more and more common in the city of McHenry. This is an unfortunate rising trend despite drug awareness programs being introduced into local elementary schools and high schools. McHenry law enforcement at both the city and county level also try to spread the message through “Say No To Drugs” campaigns. However, at the same time, drug use, especially that of marijuana and cannabis, are become more socially accepted and are often glamorized by the media to the extent that they have even become legal in some states. Colorado, in particular, has “medical marijuana dispensaries”, where anyone 21 years or older can walk in off the street and buy an ounce of marijuana, which is the current the legal limit in the state of CO. Locally, other cities and municipalities have been writing tickets for possession of marijuana in quantities of up to an ounce rather than making arrests.
But there are other drugs on local streets that CAN get you arrested. In cases where possession is a felony, you will need qualified legal representation by an experienced criminal attorney. David B.
