Drug Charges and Drug Trafficking
In North Carolina, anyone charged with drug trafficking will be required to
serve an active prison sentence and pay a fine. A person convicted of
possessing only one ounce of cocaine must serve a sentence of 35-42 months.
The punishment for drug possession increases based on the amount of drugs
involved. For example, a citizen accused of possessing four hundred or more
grams of cocaine faces a mandatory minimum prison sentence
of 175-219 months in prison and a $250,000 fine.
