Four South Carolina residents face drug charges

Drugs and other illegal substances can be found all over the world. Whether it is grown or chemically made, any type of illegal substance can present a problem, and anyone who is accused of drug allegations may find their lives turned upside down. Suddenly someone can have their reputation ruined, relationships strained or even torn apart, along with other drastic changes that rapidly shatter their whole world. Unfortunately, this scenario may have become all too real for four South Carolina residents since they all currently face drug charges.

Tragically, a South Carolina man was killed in a car accident on June 14. The pickup truck he was a passenger in somehow left the road and ended up in a ditch.
