What are some viable defenses for drug possession charges?

As all criminal defense attorneys say, anyone arrested on drug charges in Oklahoma should take the matter seriously. Never assume that the charges, warranted or not, will disappear without taking direct action. Oklahoma law enforcement is notoriously strict on drug charges and the state's penalties are stiff.

Explaining the difference between first- and second-degree murder

Facing murder/homicide charges is undoubtedly one of the most frightening things an Oklahoma resident can experience. Defendants in these cases have a great many fears, and rightfully so. After all, a successful conviction on any murder charge will have a long-lasting -- if not permanent -- effect on their entire lives.

Take a good look at how Oklahoma deals with marijuana charges

As we have said many times in our blog and on our website, it is extremely unwise to underestimate your situation if arrested on marijuana charges in Oklahoma. Unlike so many other states, Oklahoma remains steadfastly against the legalization of this substance in any form, including medical marijuana.

What types of paraphernalia can lead to drug charges in Oklahoma?

While authorities across the nation are gradually changing their view of natural substances like marijuana, Oklahoma persists in charging residents who possess or sell such substances. What many people fail to realize is that possessing items the authorities connect with drug use or distribution can also lead to drug charges in the state.

College drinking trends that can impact your future

As an Oklahoma college student, you are likely no stranger to change. From adapting to life away from home to developing good study habits and making it to classes on time, college life is often full of trial and error experiences. Beyond academics, you may also encounter various economic, cultural and social challenges during your life on (or off) campus. For many, alcohol-related issues pose a serious problem.
