Drug-Related Crimes

The US government takes drug-related offenses very seriously. Every year, tens of thousands of people are arrested and charged with crimes related to illegal drugs. Many of these charges carry steep penalties, including expensive fines and even jail time.

Child endangerment is a general crime that can be applied to things like abuse of a child and driving drunk with a child passenger.
