New Jersey Drug Charges

Drug charges in New Jersey are quite complicated. A lot of factors go into determining what you’re going to be charged with or what defenses we may be able to avail you of, for example, how you were stopped, where you were stopped, what substance you have, how much substance you have, and whether the police conducted a valid search. These are all important factors. When charged with a drug offense, the first thing you should do is contact my law office for consultation so we can sit down and establish the facts of your case and begin defending you vigorously.
 Some drugs have more serious penalties attached to them than other drugs do. For example, the possession of 50 grams of marijuana in New Jersey is not considered a crime, is considered a disorderly person and you would receive six months in jail. In New Jersey, there are also drug courts that bring people who are charged with drug convictions into a drug treatment program. When a person is a part of the drug court program, they undergo frequent drug testing and court appearances. The purpose of this program is to limit the number of re-offenders that get arrested for drug charges and hopefully stop using drugs altogether as a result of the rehabilitation program. Since April 2002, there have been over 4,300 graduates of the program.
