Everyone makes mistakes and it’s from these mistakes that we learn and grow. In cases where one’s mistakes involve the possession, use or sale of illegal drugs; the resulting consequences can be especially punitive. Despite calls for reform, current state and federal drug laws remain harsh and prosecutors may seek to make an example of even first-time and low-level offenders and push for the maximum sentence and penalties.
