Brick NJ Drug Possession Attorneys
Possession of most forms of CDS fall under N.J.S.A. 2C:35-10. This statute prohibits individuals from possessing drugs without a valid prescription. Possession can result from either direct possession or constructive possession. An individual constructively possesses drugs if they are aware of their presence and have the ability and intent to control them in the future. Direct possession applies when there is actual physical control. Our firm defends all drug possession charges in Brick including those involving:
