Types Of Drug Offenses In New Jersey

New Jersey Drug Charge AttorneysNew Jersey Drug Charge Attorneys

New Jersey law makes it illegal for any person to purposely or knowingly obtain or possess, actively or constructively, any controlled substances unless obtained via a valid prescription. Possession of narcotics, unauthorized prescriptions, or other illegal controlled dangerous substances constitutes a third-degree crime in New Jersey, which carries a potential sentence of up to five years in prison and possibly thousands of dollars in fines.

It is also illegal in New Jersey to possess drug paraphernalia. Drug paraphernalia possession is charged as a disorderly person offense, which carries a potential sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of several hundred dollars.

New Jersey law also outlaws manufacturing, distribution, and possession with intent to distribute with respect to controlled substances. In New Jersey, manufacturing, trafficking, or selling narcotics and other illegal controlled substances constitute a very serious crime. These offenses are often charged as second and first degree crimes, which can result in imprisonment for up to a decade or two, along with mandatory minimum periods of incarceration. A court can also impose hefty fines for convictions for the manufacturing and distribution of drugs.
