Felony Marijuana Charges in Mercer County

New Jersey does not refer to marijuana charges in terms of Felony and Misdemeanor but rather in terms of Indictable and Disorderly Persons Offenses. First Degree, Second Degree, Third Degree & even Fourth Degree indictable marijuana offenses are all “crimes” in NJ and result in felony records. These charges include possession of 50 grams or more of marijuana, or possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Indictable marijuana charges are heard at Mercer County Superior Court in Trenton. First Degree and Second Degree marijuana offenses are the most serious, involving 10-20 years and 5-10 years of jail exposure, respectively. These charges usually involve some form of distribution or sale of marijuana (i.e. possession with intent to distribute). Third Degree and Fourth Degree marijuana cases involve a maximum of 5 years and 18 months jail, respectively. An attorney experienced in handling indictable marijuana charges from our office is available to assist you immediately at 1-877-450-8301.
