Drugs and Guns
One of our more popular courses is back. This course will focus on the interplay between §2D1.1 and §2K2.1 for defendants charged with offenses involving drugs and guns. The course will answer frequently asked questions about the weapon enhancement at §2D1.1, distinctions between the applicable enhancement when the gun is used in connection with another offense at §2K2.1 and the cross reference at §2K2.1, and the impact of a § 924(c) conviction, among other topics. This course will also address determination of the offense level in cases involving synthetic cannabinoids, synthetic cathinones, and other synthetic drug cases.
The following scenarios were discussed at the 2017 National Seminars on the topic of drugs and guns.
