Buffalo Club Drugs & the Law

“Club drugs” are known as the main drugs that are found in late-night Buffalo area clubs and bars.  These powerful drugs contain mixtures of chemicals that are unregulated by the government and therefore lack  quality.  These drugs can lead to  overdoses, or even death.  Legally speaking, drugs such as LSD, MDMA (ecstasy), GHB, Ketamine (Special K), Rohypnol (Rophies), and Methamphetamine (speed), all carry grave consequences if you are arrested for possessing or selling them.

I just have a few pills—that can’t get me into trouble!
Think again.  Just possessing one tablet of speed or special K or ectasy can get you charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance, a misdemeanor that can land you in jail.  Even trying to sell or trade a single tablet of ecstasy could get you  a felony.  Possession of club drugs can cost you thousands in court fines and years in jail time—they are very  serious.

I think I might have a drug addiction—what should  I do?
Club drugs can be very addicting.  If you are arrested for possession of one of the many club drugs, there might be an option of attending a drug  court.  This option may only be available for first-time offenders and those possessing only a small quantitiesof the drug.  It is important to work with a criminal defense lawyer that can help determine whether you would be eligible for this alternative.

Do I really need to get a lawyer?
Yes, absolutely!  Whether you plan on pleading guilty or taking it all the way to trial, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can help advise you of your rights.

As with any arrest, having experienced legal representation can make a huge difference as to  your sentence is and whether you even need to go to trial.  .
