Are you facing a drug charge? Our Durham attorneys understand the North Carolina Controlled Substances Act governing all drug laws including drug possession, drug distribution, drug manufacturing, and drug trafficking. Drugs are defined by “Schedules.”

Schedule I drugs include Heroine, Ecstasy, GHB, Methaqualone, Peyote, Opiates. Drugs like Cocaine, Raw Opium, Hydrocodone, Morphine,
Methadone, Methamphetamine are Schedule II drugs. Schedule III drugs include steroids and Ketamine (special K).
