A Georgia man was pulled over for a routine traffic stop in Missouri. Police say after he consented to the search of his vehicle, they allegedly found 300lbs of marijuana hidden. The man was later charged with 1st Degree Drug Trafficking. If convicted, the man could face up to 30 years in prison.

John Schleiffarth of JCS Law may be able to help you or someone you love fight Drug Trafficking charges in Missouri.
