Camden County NJ Drug Charges Lawyer
Criminal Defense Lawyer Representing Clients throughout South Jersey
New Jersey strictly regulates and enforces laws about controlled dangerous substances. The New Jersey Drug Schedule classifies controlled dangerous substances on a Schedule of I through V, with specific criteria associated with each category. The Schedule includes substances such as marijuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and a wide variety of prescription medications. Drug charges can stem from the unlawful possession, sale and distribution, manufacture and production, and possession of these substances with intent to distribute. The penalties for these violations can be severe and life-altering, including significant fines, charges on your criminal record, and time in prison. In order to protect yourself from the potential consequences of a conviction, it is critical to mount a compelling defense.
