Since the war on drugs was implemented decades ago, authorities have vigorously sought and prosecuted alleged drug offenders, creating an extensive list of drug crimes and thousands of pages of case law in this area. New Jersey prosecutors have likewise engaged in the war on drugs, with charges ranging from possession of drug paraphernalia to strict liability for drug-induced deaths. With this vast array of charges come equally diverse penalties, ranging from periods of driver’s license suspension to decades of imprisonment.
The degree of the charges against you, and whether they are tried in Superior Court or Municipal Court, will be determined by the type of controlled dangerous substance and its associated classification within the New Jersey Drug Schedule, as well as the measured weight or amount of the substance, and the location of the arrest (i.e. in a school zone or public park). Regardless of the specific offense, you can be exposed to severe consequences without the assistance of an insightful and proactive defense attorney.

Diversionary Programs in New Jersey
Fortunately, New Jersey provides several attractive alternatives to convictions for drug offenses through its diversionary programs. Specifically, conditional discharge in Municipal Court and Pre-trial Intervention in Superior Court provide first-time offenders with the opportunity to complete a probationary period after which the charges against them are dismissed. These programs allow eligible applicants to avoid charges on their criminal records, which can be seriously detrimental when pursuing future educational and employment opportunities. Drug court is also a viable option for those who need rehabilitative drug treatment, not a prison sentence. Mr. Breslow has assisted countless clients with enrollment in these programs, protecting their futures and allowing them to move forward with their lives unscathed by the stigma of a criminal conviction.
