What you should know about possession with intent to distribute

In Middlesex County, and New Jersey in general, drug charges can come with some very severe consequences. This is especially true when what might have been a basic possession charge becomes possession with intent to distribute. There are three elements that must exist in order for a "possession with the intent to distribute" charge to be valid under federal law.

Dismissals aren't the same as expungements

When you're convicted of a crime, you know that expungement is the only real way to clear your record. If your case has been dismissed, you may not think it's necessary to get an expungement, but that's not the case.

Growing marijuana in New Jersey can cost you your freedom

The social stigma associated with marijuana use, sales and cultivation have decreased in the last decade. As more states decriminalize or overtly legalize adult recreational use of marijuana, people become more open to it. You may not have thought that growing a few plants in your garage, garden or basement was a big deal. Then law enforcement showed up. Maybe they arrived because of a nearby crime, or perhaps someone noticed your plants and called to report you. Regardless of why they are there, if law enforcement find marijuana plants on your property, you can expect criminal charges.

Now, a group of attorneys general from across the country have banded together to investigate how drug manufacturers market and sell prescription opioids. The group seeks to determine whether drug manufacturers have misled physicians about the dangers of their drugs in order to boost sales.
