The opioid crisis and heroin offenses

Looking at the big picture, the opioid epidemic and heroin offenses are linked hand-in-hand. When prescription painkillers hit the mainstream population by means of doctors roughly two decades ago, it led to the direct increase in heroin offenses and addictions. This is because chemically, many prescription painkillers and heroin are the same chemical structure. This means you can get a similar high by using either drug - whether found on the street or prescribed.

Why build a criminal defense against heroin offenses?

When it comes to illicit drug use, it's estimated that thousands are suffering from opioid addiction in the United States. Whether due to actual heroin use or a similar-based prescription pill like painkillers, heroin use is on the rise. It can have a huge impact on a person's health and well-being and it can result in criminal implications with the law. If you or a loved one is accused of a heroin offense, what steps should be taken?It's important to remember that being accused of a drug crime does not equate to being convicted of that crime. Much can happen between the filing of drug charges and the actual conviction of said crime. Each person accused of a criminal offense as the right to build a criminal defense and to tell their side of the story. Heroin offenses can have a huge impact on a person's future and can have criminal, professional and negative impacts across the totality of a person's life.
