North Carolina drug laws can be complicated. While many controlled substances are illegal under federal law, individual states like North Carolina also have regulations. These regulations spell out how different types of substances are handled legally.
In general, North Carolina follows the federal government’s lead in classifying drugs. The government uses a scheduling system to denote how serious each type of drug is. The drugs considered a danger to a person’s health and wellbeing fall under Schedule I, while those with a medical use and a low probability for abuse are in Schedule [...]
North Carolina is a state that has been deeply touched by the opioid epidemic in the United States. Unfortunately, the problem only seems to be growing. Drug overdoses and deaths related to them are growing in the state each day.
The opioid crisis in the state exists in spite of the strict drug laws North Carolina has in place and new laws they are passing to increase penalties associated with drugs. It’s because of this that many people fear calling emergency services if someone is overdosing or to report if they are in [...]
In North Carolina, there are several different types of felony drug crimes with which a person can be charged. The drug offenses range from crimes like drug possession, which is considered in some cases to be a lower-level crime, all the way up to serious drug felonies such as drug trafficking.
No matter what type of drug crime charge, it’s vital to understand that they are all serious felonies, and they come with weighty consequences in the state. Here is what you need to know about how North Carolina classifies different drug crimes.[...]
When you are arrested and charged with a crime, the evidence against you is the cornerstone of the prosecution’s case. That’s why the police try so hard at an arrest to ensure that they gather any and all evidence against you.
However, it’s not legal for police to simply search you, your home, or any of your property just to see what they can find. They must have the legal right to do that search in the first place.
But how do you know if a search against you was legal or not? [...]

My deepest thanks to the team at Schlosser and Pritchett. What might have seemed a hopeless case to some was not to this team. My traffic violation was dismissed when even I didn't think it had a chance. Well done folks and rest assured I am advocate of your firm. Thanks, Jim
I made the terrible mistake of driving drunk and got a DWI. And due to my high BAC I was facing some very serious penalties. After much "lawyer shopping" I decided to go with Mr. Pritchett. He made it very clear we faced an uphill battle and in all likelihood i would be convicted. Nevertheless, we came up with a plan and when favorable situations presented themselves Mr. Pritchett knew exactly how to use them to our advantage. Because of his thorough knowledge of how the system works he was able to get my DWI charge dismissed on June 8, 2018. I have learned my lesson and will NEVER drink and drive again but for those that make the mistake I highly recommend Mr. Pritchett. Thank you so much to everyone at Sclosser and Pritchett!
