Drug defenses in South Carolina

As state and federal drugs laws have become more permeable recently, South Carolina residents may benefit from learning more about possible defenses against unfounded allegations from law enforcement. Even though drug laws vary from state to state, most defense strategies rely on similar defense tactics to try to exonerate clients of the charges. People who have been accused by police of possession of drugs or intent to sell may benefit from considering some of the defense strategies that are typically used in these types of cases.
