Understanding What You Are Facing When Charged With Marijuana Possession In NJ

Do not fall into the trap of thinking “it’s just marijuana.” Prosecutors take marijuana possession charges just as seriously as they take any other type of drug possession. A conviction can have a widespread impact on you or your child, including:

  • Fines, jail time, and possible driver’s license suspension
  • Difficulty getting a job because of a criminal record
  • Limited college prospects
  • Difficulty renting an apartment or getting mortgage approval
  • Restrictions or challenges to traveling abroad

As a former prosecutor, attorney Porfido is very familiar with the methods that will be used to try to convict you. He will investigate the circumstances surrounding your arrest to see if your Fourth Amendment rights were violated by an unlawful search, lack of a warrant or any other defects that frequently arise in drug crime cases. Whether you are a juvenile or an adult, you can rely on our firm to be by your side to fight against marijuana possession charges and any related offenses such as trafficking or cultivation.
