Forgetfulness can now result in drug charges

In the past, you pretty much had to make a conscious effort to get drug charges that would stick in New Hampshire. These days, with the shifting laws across the country, forgetfulness could land you in the same boat.

For example, you could go out to Colorado this fall to do some hiking, or you could go in the winter for the skiing. While you're there, you may decide to buy some marijuana, which is legal in the state for recreational purposes. Then, when your vacation is done, you may gather up your things and return to New Hampshire.

What if you forget that you still have some marijuana left? Maybe you bought brownies that were made with cannabis, so you just forgot they contained the drugs. Maybe you stashed a bag of marijuana in your backpack to take on a hike, and it just slipped your mind. There are countless ways that you could accidentally end up back in New Hampshire with drugs in your possession that are now illegal.

This is something that could become more and more of an issue if legalization of marijuana continues to spread. The issue has so far been put on hold in New Hampshire, so it remains illegal. If you think you wouldn't go as far as Colorado to get it, you have to consider that legalization may eventually come to nearby states like Maine, Vermont and the rest. This could make mistakes easier for anyone.

If you are being charged because of simple forgetfulness, you must know what legal rights you have. Please check out our site to learn more.
