Nashville, Franklin, Middle Tennesee Drug Possession Lawyer - Legal Powers

Legal Powers, PLLC, has successfully represented Middle Tennesseans facing drug charges in Franklin, Tennessee.


As reported by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, nearly 80% of crimes in Tennessee have some relationship to drugs and the relationship is not limited to illegal narcotics. That’s because prescription drugs are becoming more prevalent and so too are Tennessee drug charges involving prescription drugs. According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, studies show that, in Tennessee, 70% of people who use prescription drugs for non-medical reasons got the prescription drugs from a friend or relative.

The laws surrounding drug crimes in Tennessee are complex and very detailed. In Tennessee, a drug crime may be charged as a misdemeanor charge or a felony charge depending on a number of factors and the facts surrounding your arrest or citation; such as whether you possessed a drug for your own use or whether you possessed the drug with the intent to sell.

Drug Charges in Franklin, TN
