Possession of Drug Paraphernalia Defense in Atlantic & Cape May County

What to Do When Facing Drug Paraphernalia Charges in New Jersey

Baggies, scales, and pipes are just a few of the more common items that can be the basis for being charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. These charges often accompany drug possession charges. But, even when they are standalone drug charges, they can create real and lasting difficulties in your life. The consequences for a drug paraphernalia possession charge include:

  • Jail
  • Suspended driver’s license

And some of the difficulties may be felt long after the legal consequences have passed, including difficulty in:

  • Obtaining financial aid
  • Securing employment
  • Leasing an apartment

You need to make avoiding both the immediate and the long-term consequences of this charge a priority. Securing skilled and exceptional representation is your first step to fully protecting your rights.
