Concerns have been raised about whether the drug laws in Tennessee, including those governing heroin-related crimes, are too strict. However, the laws are still on the books, and the reality is that if you face a drug crime accusation in the state, you can expect stiff penalties if a conviction happens in your case.
When police arrived at your home with a search warrant, you may have had little time or attention to look it over carefully. Even if you did read the warrant, would you have understood the legal jargon or known if the warrant was valid? Chances are you skimmed the document looking for details about what the officers expected to find.
