Can you be charged with buying a drug from an informant
There are investigations in North Carolina currently over the arrests of several individuals following their purchases of supposed illegal drugs from police department informants.

The investigations center on the evidence that is supporting the charges, which turn out not to be drugs at all. Some cases have already been dismissed over the false evidence and at least one police detective has been placed on leave.

So, while an arrest is certainly possible if someone purchases drugs from a police informant, the facts of purchase and the evidence must support the arrest and any resulting charge.

I'm at a complete loss to imagine how you think the answer to this question could possibly be anything other than yes.
I believe Rhonda wanted a bit more than a yes or no answer. Perhaps Rhonda will return with her reasons for asking the question.
