Drug Transportation and Distribution

If you are stopped in your car by law enforcement and even a small bag of cocaine, marijuana, meth or other narcotics is found in the vehicle, your charge will most likely be elevated to a harsher drug transportation charge. Likewise if you have multiple bags of drugs, your charge may be elevated to possession with intent to distribute.
