Drug Distribution Defense Attorney in Middlesex County
Not all people who are arrested on drug distribution charges are drug dealers. Many are students and average working people. If you are caught with possession of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine or other illegal drugs above a certain amount, you could be charged with possession with intent to distribute, even if the drugs were for your personal use. If you sell or dispense drugs to a friend at school, in the workplace or at a social activity such as a concert, you could face the same potential jail time as a dealer who distributes drugs on the street.
