New Jersey Criminal Lawyer Discusses Marijuana Possession
If you are charged with one of the following charges, as well as some others, you may be eligible for a Conditional Discharge and therefore not have to worry about a criminal conviction.
These charges are:
- Possession of Marijuana 2C:35-10(a)(4)
- Use or under the influence of CDS (Controlled Dangerous Substance, which includes marijuana) 2C:35-10(b)
- Failure to surrender CDS to police 2C:35-10(c)
- Possession or use of drug paraphernalia 2C:36-2
- Possession of hypodermic syringe/needle 2C:36-6
You DO NOT Have to Consent to a Search of Your Vehicle
You can say “no” and there is no penalty. People usually buckle under because of authority figures and they think that there will be some type of benefit to them if they do agree.
If you or a loved one has been charged with one of these disorderly persons offenses (other offenses also qualify) then you may be eligible for a conditional discharge in New Jersey. If you are eligible for the conditional discharge you may be able to get your charges dismissed. As an experienced New Jersey Criminal Lawyer and former prosecutor I am trained to recognize the cases that qualify for this treatment.
