Marijuana Distribution Lawyer in Hackensack, NJ

Experienced Drug Offense Attorney Fights for Your Rights in Marijuana Distribution Cases in Bergen County and Essex County, New Jersey

Though medical marijuana dispensaries are now legal in New Jersey, illegal distribution of marijuana remains a serious criminal offense. When you’ve been arrested for a marijuana distribution charge in New Jersey, which has a reputation for some of the harshest penalties for drug offenses in the country, you are likely to face serious jail time if convicted. That’s because the sale and distribution of marijuana in New Jersey are regulated by both state and federal law. Although a movement throughout the country is underway to make possession, sale, and manufacture of marijuana legal for personal, non-medical use under certain conditions, New Jersey still punishes illegal distribution of marijuana with severe penalties.

If you’ve been charged with marijuana distribution in New Jersey, Hackensack attorney Adam M. Lustberg can help mitigate the damages, build a solid case, and fight for your rights. Contact him today to schedule a free initial consultation about your marijuana distribution case.

While the sentences and fines for NJ marijuana distribution charges vary, depending upon weight, location of sale, and age of customer, prison sentences can be up to 25 years, with repeat convictions adding up to a life sentence. Lesser penalties can include loss of driving privileges and fines of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Even if you didn’t intend to sell or distribute marijuana, if you possessed a certain amount of the drug, you may be charged with possession with intent to deliver (PWID). Regardless of whether that amount is intended for your own use and you did not plan to sell it, you may still be charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and you could be subject to a felony conviction which will follow you for the rest of your life. You may also be charged with a felony marijuana distribution offense if you were arrested for drug manufacturing, drug distribution, and/or drug trafficking in New Jersey. If you are convicted of marijuana sale and distribution in NJ, the conviction could take away your freedom and destroy your future.
