Woman faces hundreds of drug charges in Maryland

A recent two-month investigation looking into prescription drug fraud has ended with a woman facing hundreds of charges related to prescription drugs.

Marijuana drug charges can have serious consequences

We have often discussed cases involving drug charges. While some people might have a tendency to think that some drug crimes are worse than others, that isn't necessarily the case.

For some people, what they have done in the past has a way of coming back to them at a time when they least expect it.

Man and many others face drug charges for cross-country operation

In a country that is supposed to be free, some might find it shocking that there is still such a focus being placed on people who sell drugs to adults who want to experience their effects. Recently, at least 16 people have been charged in connection with an interstate narcotics trafficking scheme. The main person netted in the sting was a 46-year-old man. This case might interest readers in Maryland since seven of the accused people are facing drug charges in the U.S. District Court in Maryland.

Drug charges filed based on package mailed to a Maryland address

When most people think about someone being busted for drugs, they think of police raiding a home or drugs being found during a traffic stop.

In the case of a St. Mary's County man, a package being delivered via the United States Postal Service is what landed him behind bars.
