Handling Drug Crimes in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Our attorneys are knowledgeable in defending against drug charges for street drugs like marijuana, cocaine, molly (MDMA), methamphetamine. We also handle charges stemming from prescription drugs including oxycodone, Xanax, Adderall, and Soma. Charges we handle include:

  • Possession – Even mere possession of a controlled substance can carry extremely harsh penalties. In New Jersey simple possession of marijuana can result in up to 18 months in prison, a $500 to $15,000 fine, loss of driver’s license, and court-ordered drug rehabilitation. In Pennsylvania you could face 30 days in jail and $500 in fines for a first offense involving less than 30 grams of marijuana. Possession of other “hard” drugs in Pennsylvania can result in up to 1 year in jail and $5,000 in fines.
  • Distribution or Trafficking – Police officers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey typically look to circumstances in deciding whether the offense was simple possession or more serious possession with intent to deliver charges. These include the amount of drugs involved, whether the substance was individually packaged, if large amounts of cash were in the vicinity of the drugs.
  • Manufacture or cultivation – The cultivation of marijuana can carry a jail sentence of up to 5 years in Pennsylvania if the amount is less than 1,000 pounds. In New Jersey the penalty of marijuana cultivation depends on the number of plants involved. Up to ten plants can lead to a fine of up to $25,000 and 3 to 5 years in prison. 10 to 49 plants see the penalties increase to $150,000 in fines and between 3 to 5 years in prison. More than 50 plants can result in a maximum fine of $300,000 and 10 to 20 years in prison.
  • Drug Paraphernalia – The use, sale or possession of drug paraphernalia is prohibited in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Paraphernalia can include zip-lock baggies, analog or digital scales, drug kits, razor blades, rolling papers, grinders, spoons, or any item associate with the use of illegal drugs.

Whether you are facing one of the above charges or if you have different concerns, our experienced team of attorneys can protect your freedom and defend your rights.
