We have extensive experience in the area of narcotic violations. There are three basic areas.

Possession

It is illegal to possess a substance defined under federal and state law as a “controlled substance” without authorization. Possession includes having a “substance” physically on your person (jacket, bag, pocket, …) or in an area which you control (your house, car, apartment, yard…)

Distribution

It is illegal both under State and Federal Law to possess a substance defined as a controlled substance withthe intent to distribute, sell or transfer to another.

The classification of the defense as distribution is determined by the person’s conduct, including but not limited to selling or attempting to sell the substance, or by the amount or weight of the substance that is possessed or controlled (meaning that the narcotic need not necessarily have to be in your possession).

Trafficking

Is the possession with selling aggravated amounts of controlled substances.
