What if I’m charged with drug distribution?

  • The first thing to know is that New Jersey has several wonderful alternatives for people with drug problems. Sitting down with an attorney immediately, so you can work out one of these alternatives rather than jail, is imperative.
  • Second, the most important factor affecting your distribution of CDS (controlled dangerous substance) case is the physical circumstances. Such as: 1) were you in or out of a car; 2) were you in your home; 3) were you by yourself or with others; 4) were you in fact buy or selling drugs; 5) do you have a drug problem and were the drugs for personal use.
