What Are the Penalties for Illegally Possessing or Distributing Prescription Drugs in Essex County, NJ?
New Jersey’s Prescription Drug Statute makes it illegal to carry prescription drugs and other medications without a valid prescription. Possession and distribution of prescription medication is also illegal unless you are a licensed physician, pharmacist, dentist or other practitioner authorized to prescribe or distribute prescription drugs.
New Jersey has stiff penalties for prescription drug crimes, including fines, probation, counseling classes, random drug testing, public service and prison. Penalties range in severity based on prior convictions, the amount of drugs involved, the type of drug(s) involved and whether or not there was intent to sell.
Contrary to popular belief, there is no “small amount” exception. Even if you are charged with possession of a small amount of illegal prescription drugs, you can face serious consequences. For example, even if you are caught with four or fewer pills, you may still be charged with a criminal offense in New Jersey. The drugs don’t have to be on your person; they can be in your bag or found in your car.
