Drugs and Guns and Laws.. Oh My!

A good thing to know, especially if you are a gun carrying Arkansan, is that if you have a felony amount of narcotics and a firearm that you are subject to Arkansas Code Annotated 5-74-106. Simultaneous Possession of Drugs and Firearms (herein referred to as “Simultaneous”), a Class Y felony in the State of Arkansas punishable by 10-40 years in prison or Life without the possibility of parole, and/or up to a $25,000.00 fine. Now this law has a few different facets, however with the recent changes to Arkansas law regarding marijuana I have decided to discuss what I would call the “iron circle of simultaneous possession”.

No Fake Drugs

The topic of today's post is..... fake drugs (counterfeit substances). It is a felony in the state of Arkansas to possess a "counterfeit substance",or in in other words, do not have non-drugs that you are trying to say are drugs. Believe it or not people do this and get themselves in trouble for aspirin, that however is not the funny part. The most peculiar part of this law is when they allow you to have fake drugs. According to the law below you can have fake drugs if they are given by prescription.
