Drugs and Guns

Violations of the Uniform Controlled Dangerous Substances Act includes a provision involving the unlawful carrying of a firearm while also in the possession of a controlled dangerous substance. What many defendants have a difficult time understanding is even if the firearm is legally registered or even being legally carried as a licensed concealed carry, when paired with a scheduled controlled dangerous substance the otherwise legal gun carrier is committing a felony which carries a MINIMUM of 5 (five) years at hard labor.

Possible Penalties for Charges involving a Firearm and CDS

While the maximum penalties greatly differ based on the circumstances and the CDS involved, the minimum is 5 years at hard labor.
