In New York State, drug offenses are treated very seriously based on the 1970s when the Rockefeller Drug Laws went into effect for mandatory incarceration for even the smallest amount of serious drugs, heroin and cocaine. Those laws are still on the books. It’s even more serious if you’re deemed to be trafficking in illegal drugs or narcotics or you’re someone who delivers drugs to or from someone or if you were to purchase or sell drugs to someone.
Criminal possession of controlled substances is a felony. Criminal sale is a felony. So many clients believe that when they sell or buy from their friends that they’re not engaging in drug trafficking compared to if they went to someone on the street corner. It’s deemed the same in the eyes of the law and the police or the drug task force.
