Hoboken and Jersey City, NJ Drug Trafficking Attorney

Defending the rights of people accused of drug trafficking

Drug laws in New Jersey are especially tough. Simple possession of a schedule I and II drug is considered a felony by the state. A drug trafficking charge is much worse for the accused. Drug trafficking is the sale, transportation, distribution, and production of a large amount of a controlled substance. The Drug Enforcement Administration is in place to seek out people who are trafficking drugs and pursue aggressive penalties for the crime.

Defending against aggressive drug courts and harsh penalties

America spends about 60 billion dollars on drugs each year. The punishment depends on the amount of the drugs and the kind of drugs. The most commonly trafficked drugs are marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, and heroin. These drugs are Schedule I and II, which mean they are considered the most dangerous and addictive. The DEA and New Jersey courts aggressively fine and penalize people charged with drug trafficking, especially Schedule I and II drugs. The charge for drug trafficking is a felony. If you are convicted, you will face jail time from a minimum of 1 year up to 20 years and enormous fines.
