In New York, a single charge of possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute can carry serious consequences. Six individuals were taken into custody by the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office in March on multiple counts of possession with intent.

Drug possession penalties in New York can be serious

New York, like other U.S. states and countries around the world, has a range of criminal penalties for the possession of illegal drugs classified as controlled substances in state law. The type and severity of the penalty often depend on the specific drug a person is accused of possessing as well as the amount in their possession and any previous record of convictions on the same charge. Depending on these factors, people could face felony or misdemeanor charges that carry an array of penalties, from fines to jail or prison time.

Understanding marijuana charges is important for New Yorkers

The legalization of medicinal and recreational marijuana has been a hot topic across the country for the past several years. Many states have legalized cannabis for recreational smoking and “edibles,” and some of those that have not, do allow certain people to purchase and use the drug to relieve pain and other symptoms of serious medical conditions. However, New York continues to have some of the strictest laws in the country regarding cannabis use. If you understand the basics of marijuana laws in New York, you may avoid potentially serious criminal charges.
