Tennessee couple facing meth, weed possession charges

On the far side of Tennessee sits Morristown, a modest city of about 30,000 residents. Of course, no matter what size the city or where it is situated within the state’s borders, people arrested on drug charges there are subject to the same harsh punishments if convicted.

Police: Ringing phone leads to more drug arrests

It takes about three hours to drive northeast of Memphis to Weakley County.

Memphis woman says twin was arrested on drug charges, not her

(and) un-American, really.”

With no end in sight, the “war on drugs” continues to rage

The so-called "war on drugs" was declared 47 years ago by President Richard Nixon, and there is still no end in sight. Last year, the federal government spent $27.5 billion in the ongoing battle with announcements from the president and attorney general that stiffer sentences are needed for drug violations – even including the death penalty in certain circumstances.
