I’ve got an overview of North Carolina’s drug laws in a section on various North Carolina laws. North Carolina has pretty harsh drug laws, so harsh that people coming from New York City, where similar drug crimes are treated much more leniently, may find themselves facing years and years for the same crime here in North Carolina.

In addition, there are mandatory minimum sentences for trafficking, and Wake County’s District Attorney has a very tough approach to drug crimes in the county.  More is available here.
