Chinese fentanyl trade blamed for Ohio overdoses

The slew of individuals caught with fentanyl in Ohio has been a major concern with the growing opioid epidemic, but a news release from July 24 may pinpoint where the influx of the dangerous drug came from. According to the report, it was a Chinese wholesale supplier that shipped the fentanyl to Northeast Ohio.

Having the ingredients to make drugs can get you in trouble

You know that you can be accused of a drug crime if you're in possession of items that could be used to create drugs, but are they really that common?

Mailing drugs through the mail is not always illegal, but it is when you do not have a prescription or the authority for that delivery.

You can fight drug distribution or sales charges

You were transporting drugs in your vehicle, but you never intended to sell them. They were your personal stash, used to help you control pain. You're not into hard drugs, you just use marijuana when you need to relax and unwind.

Police: Drug-related items found in Ohio child porn raid

What can be considered drug paraphernalia?

You don't have to be found in possession of illegal drugs to face drug charges. Being in possession of items related to the use of illegal drugs (drug paraphernalia) can land you in jail. Drug paraphernalia includes items used to distribute and ingest drugs. Even common household items like spoons, bowls and scales can be considered drug paraphernalia, depending on the circumstances in which they're found.
