Because law enforcement takes any violation of drug laws extremely seriously there is no such thing as a “minor” drug charge in New Jersey or Pennsylvania. If you are found by police in possession of even a single marijuana joint or evidence of drug paraphernalia in your vehicle, you may be arrested and charged with very serious drug possession offenses. These are offenses that can carry some very strict penalties. Moreover, in drug cases prosecutors will often seek maximum punishments. A conviction could lead to significant prison time, stiff fines as well as a permanent criminal record that be very damaging to your life going forward.
