NYC Marijuana Trafficking Defense Lawyer
Defending Against Federal Drug Charges in Scarsdale, Manhattan, Bronx,
It is a crime to engage in any form of activity that involves the manufacture,
distribution, sale or
possession of marijuana. While there have been radical changes over the last few years in the
way that marijuana has been regulated under state and federal law, New
York State has remained steadfast in their prosecution against marijuana-related
crimes. For this reason, you could expect to fast serious legal consequences
if it is discovered that you were in possession of marijuana for any reason.
This drug is considered to be a Schedule I substance, which means that
it has a high potential for abuse, no accepted medical use and a lack
of accepted safety for use of the drug. If you are accused of trafficking
and/or distributing this drug across state or U.S. borders, you would
be subject to federal prosecution. For Schedule I and II substances, an
offender would be sentenced to a minimum of 10 years in prison if convicted—which includes
marijuana, methamphetamine, PCP and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD).

Depending on the amount of the substance that they were allegedly transporting
at the time of their arrest, the offender could also be fined hundreds
of thousands of dollars, if not millions of dollars. For this reason,
you should not take these charges lightly, whether your case is being
tried on a state or federal level. Fortunately, our firm is well-qualified to help.
