Could Minnesota become the next state to legalize recreational marijuana?
If you've been advised that you're facing federal criminal charges, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Minneapolis has likely forwarded you and your attorney a copy of your grand jury indictment as part of a discovery packet.
There are five types of felonies that apply to drug offenses in the state of Minnesota. County, state and federal lawmakers refer to narcotics possession by degree, with first being the most serious and fifth being the least serious of all these offenses. The penalties gradually increase depending on what type of crime a defendant is convicted of.
