Wisconsin struggles as drug dealer arrests decline

Fewer drug dealers are being arrested in Wisconsin, but that's not necessarily good news. Instead, the people harmed by these dealers, drug users, are seeing themselves in the custody of the police. To make a long story short, the police are catching more people who are in possession of drugs without eliminating the people bringing drugs into the area.

You can fight a drug charge by knowing the legal process

When you're arrested, you may feel like you want to fight back and defend yourself. It's not in your best interests to do so. Don't become violent or try to explain yourself, because you may incriminate yourself further. Go with the police willingly, and be patient, because you will have a chance to defend yourself soon.
