North Carolina's Drug-Trafficking Law


Author(s):
Abstract:
Drug trafficking of drugs such as cocaine, heroine, and marijuana are growing problems in the United States. This led north Carolina to enact strict drug-trafficking statues. Before this the law was passed in 1980, North Carolina did not set special punishments for crimes that involved very large amounts of drugs. However, under the drug-trafficking law, the punishment escalates drastically as the amount of the illegal substances increases.
