Minnesota Lawyers For Synthetic Drug Charges
A new Minnesota statute has stepped up the prosecution of the sale of synthetic drugs, making it a felony worth offense. While the law strives to clearly define synthetic drugs according to ingredients and methods of manufacturing, these substances can vary widely in composition and affect the user.
If you have been charged with a synthetic drug-related crime, it is important that you have a defense team that understands these drugs and precisely how the law applies to their use and distribution.
