Lawrence is a large Massachusetts city located in Essex County. The city manufactures many products, including footwear, food, textiles, and computers. The city is named after Abbott Lawrence, who was a congressman and a wealthy merchant. Lawrence became an industrial city as a result of its proximity to the Merrimack River, which supplied valuable waterpower. Lawrence declined after World War II, and the city struggled for many years. It has been making efforts at urban renewal, many of which have been successful. Crime, particularly violent crime, has been reduced in recent years. An immigrant community throughout its history, the newest immigrants making Lawrence home are primarily Hispanic and Asian.

Massachusetts Criminal Drug Defense Lawyer

Effective criminal drug defense is critical to obtaining a fair result in a drug case. Drug laws in Massachusetts prohibit, among many other activities, possessing, distributing and trafficking drugs. The punishments can be heavy, depending on factors such as the nature of the alleged offense, one’s criminal history, the amount of drugs, and the type of substance involved. Here in Massachusetts, substances are divided into different classes, with Class A being the most serious and Class E being the least severe. An example of a Class A substance would be heroin, which is widely considered a very dangerous drug. In fact, heroin is deemed so dangerous that it is a Massachusetts crime to even be knowingly present where it is kept. An example of a Class E drug would be a prescription drug containing something like morphine or opium. Common drugs like cocaine and Oxycontin are Class B substances, and marijuana is a Class D substance.
