Results Driven Aggressive Defense Strategies
Methamphetamine is a stimulant that was initially intended for use in treating patients with congestion issues and ADHD. However, the drug is highly addictive and often abused, which has resulted in it being classified as a Schedule II drug on the DEA’s drug schedule list.
It is illegal to possess any form of methamphetamine without a valid prescription. North Carolina law also enacts penalties for manufacturing or selling meth in any form. Contact the drug crime attorneys at Floyd Law Offices if you've received meth criminal charges!
