New York has historically been known for some of the toughest and most complex drug laws in the United States. New York criminalizes the possession or sale of any controlled substance, including marijuana. These drug crimes include, but are not limited to the sale, distribution, manufacturing, and possession of a controlled substance. The severity of the charge depends on many factors, including the nature of the offense, the type of controlled substance involved, the quantity of the controlled substance, and the individual’s criminal history.
New York drug crimes are categorized by degree, which can be extremely confusing. Most drug crimes, however, increase in severity as the amount of the controlled substance possessed or sold increases. With so many factors to consider, it is important to have an attorney that is experienced and knowledgeable.
