Many people who engage in drug activity have a false sense of security when it comes to their risk of getting into legal trouble. Particularly among those who regularly possess or manufacture small amounts of drugs, there's often an assumption that police and the courts are only interested in pursuing high-level drug crimes. But no one should consider themselves under the radar when it comes to enforcement of drug laws in Oregon.
While driving drunk or on drugs is never acceptable to police, there are some circumstances that can make a traffic stop worse and further damage your case in court. Take for example the case of a 30-year-old Portland, Oregon, woman who was arrested last week.
