Types of Drug Crimes in Massachusetts
Drug crimes in Massachusetts generally fall into three categories: possession, distribution, and manufacturing. Possession of illegal drugs is a crime in Massachusetts and carries serious penalties ranging from fines to jail time depending on the amount and type of drug involved. Possession of even small amounts of drugs can result in jail time, so it is important to know the laws and understand your rights if you are facing any kind of drug-related offense.
Distribution and manufacturing of drugs are also criminal offenses in Massachusetts. Distribution or sale of illicit substances carries tougher penalties than simple possession. In addition, distributing or manufacturing drugs near schools, playgrounds, or public parks will result in harsher sentences as well. Manufacturing an illegal drug can also lead to charges being filed against those involved in the production process, such as supplying precursors or providing laboratory equipment.
While both medical and recreational marijuana are legal in Massachusetts, the law regulates the possession, production, and sale of cannabis products. Violating these regulations is a criminal offense and can result in serious penalties. If you are charged with a marijuana-related crime, it is important that you take those charges seriously and work with an experienced drug crimes defense lawyer.
We provide aggressive criminal defense representation for clients who are charged with any type of drug offense, including:
- Possession for sale or distribution
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Manufacturing or cultivation
- Prescription drug crimes
- Conspiracy to commit a drug crime
