Everett is a city in Massachusetts located in Middlesex County and north of Boston. The city is unique in that it has a bicameral legislature made up of a Board of Aldermen and a Common Council. It is the only city in the country that is set up in this way. Everett is bordered by Malden, Revere, Chelsea, Boston, Somerville and Medford.

Like many communities in the Greater Boston area, Everett sees its fair share of drug activity. Particularly, in recent years, Everett has experienced an increase in heroin use and sales. This is possibly a result of the relatively modern popularity of Oxycontin, which many consider to be a gateway to heroin. There are both state and federal laws that govern drug crimes, and the ramifications of drug charges are extremely serious. Drug crimes often carry mandatory minimum sentences. More serious drug offenses are those that involve selling, trafficking or manufacturing drugs, partly because studies show a connection between these kinds of activities and violent crimes involving competition in the drug trade and fights arising from drug transactions. Drug crimes that involve simple possession or use of illegal drugs are less serious, but that is not to say that they can in any way be considered trivial.
