Drug Crimes Defense

One type of Massachusetts drug crime is possession. Possession of drugs is a crime under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 94C Section 34. Generally, the maximum potential punishment is up to one year in jail or a fine of up to $1,000 (or both). However, possession of certain drugs, such as heroin, is treated differently.

Possession with intent to distribute cases usually involve marijuana, cocaine and heroin. Possession with intent to distribute marijuana, a Class D substance, is punishable by up to 2 years in jail and/or a $500 fine for a first offense. Possession with intent to distribute cocaine, a Class B substance, and heroin, a Class A substance, involve more serious potential penalties as they are considered to be more dangerous drugs.

Trafficking is the most serious drug crime in Massachusetts, and convictions carry mandatory minimum sentences. Trafficking is distribution or possession with intent to distribute a certain larger amount of drugs.

Many federal drug crimes carry mandatory minimums as well. Federal drug laws are notoriously complicated, and if you are facing a federal drug charge, it is important to retain a drug crimes lawyer with experience in the federal system.
