Unfortunately, a “drug free school zone” is defined to include more than just school property. It encompasses anywhere within “one thousand feet (1,000') of the real property that comprises a public or private elementary school, middle school, secondary school, preschool, child care agency, or public library, recreational center or park.” Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-17-432. We have a combined 25 years of experience in successfully defending clients against drug free school zone violations, and will provide you with the best possible outcome.
