I got a transportation of drugs charge 10 months back and now I have this ticket. This will put me over 6 points on my license which will result in a long loss of license, but I haven't gone through a driving course yet and was wondering if pleading not guilty and taking a driving course will help. What do you think I should do?

I think you need to hire a lawyer first. Taking a driver's course does help and should reduce the points that are on your record already. I would plead not guilty, ask for a jury trial and have a lawyer work out the details with the police officer who wrote the ticket or the prosecutor if the state assigns one for traffic tickets.
