Today, Beverly has residential and manufacturing areas, centers of business, and top-notch public schools. Endicott College is also located in Beverly. While this city offers quiet neighborhoods and abundant open space, it also has a bustling downtown.

Although Beverly is generally not a high-crime city, no city or town is isolated from drug crimes. Drug crimes are common throughout the state. In a typical year, there are more than 20,000 Massachusetts drug violation arrests, more than any other crime. Most drug crimes in our Commonwealth tend to involve heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and Oxycontin.

Drug crimes are aggressively prosecuted in Massachusetts, and those who are convicted can face harsh penalties. Drug crimes include trafficking, distribution, possession, possession with intent to distribute, manufacturing, conspiracy, school zone violations, drug paraphernalia, and more. The nature of drug cases basically depends on the type and quantity of drug involved and the purpose for which a person has the drugs. Likewise, potential punishments depend on these factors as well as the defendant's record. Often times, individuals can find themselves facing serious drug charges simply because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time or socializing with someone who was using or distributing drugs.
