Drug dealers in North Carolina are being charged with murder

Residents in North Carolina may have heard that according to some our nation is under the grip of an opioid epidemic. In 2016, North Carolina saw just under 480 deaths involving fentanyl -- approximately two times as many in 2015. And, after three people in North Carolina passed away due to an opioid overdose, including a 16-year-old girl, state prosecutors have decided to prosecute the reported drug dealers with second-degree murder, rather than the usual drug charges.

What happens if I'm caught with drugs at a festival?

Summertime provides the perfect weather for a weekend road trip to an outdoor concert.

However, even if you have merely consumed one drink, and are pulled over by an officer on the way home, it is possible that you may be asked to perform a field sobriety test or you could even be accused of drunk driving.
