Drug busts for cocaine are on the rise. Don't let the news fool you. Just because some states are going easy on marijuana, doesn't mean strict punishment for drug charges are going to become a thing of the past. Especially if it's a drug like cocaine. If someone is convicted of possession, delivery, distribution, sales or trafficking of cocaine, there's a strong chance that they won't obtain a favorable outcome. If they want a deferred sentence, reduced charges or dismissed charges, they will need a great legal defense.
