Second Offense Misdemeanor Drug Charges in North Carolina

When a person has a prior misdemeanor conviction under the North Carolina Controlled Substances Act (for example misdemeanor possession of marijuana), a subsequent or later charge for misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance carries a higher punishment level. Most people have no idea this punishment enhancement for repeat offenders exists. For example, a person with a class 1 misdemeanor possession of marijuana conviction who after the conviction is later charged with a second class 1 misdemeanor possession of marijuana will be charged instead with a Class I felony. Repeat misdemeanor possession of drug charges can be more serious than most people, especially young people, think. If you are charged with misdemeanor drug possession and have a prior conviction for misdemeanor drug possession you should consult with an attorney immediately. Many people who have dealt with a misdemeanor drug possession charge in the past think it is no big deal – never realizing they may be in far more trouble then they know.
