Drug crimes in Massachusetts 

Drug offenses in Massachusetts involve possession, possession with intent to distribute, or trafficking/distribution of drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, crack, and prescription drugs. It is also illegal to possess or distribute certain chemicals used to manufacture drugs, as well as some drug paraphernalia. Access to, or presence of items such as baggies, scales, or large amounts of cash may be used in court as proof of intent to distribute. 

If you face drug charges, it is important to find a strong, resourceful drug crime lawyer to advocate for you and protect your interests in court. 

A drug crime lawyer helps you understand potential consequences

Massachusetts has decriminalized possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and has reduced the breadth driver’s license suspensions for drug offenses. The state has made it easier for individuals with drug records to have their records sealed or expunged. Still, a drug possession charge is not something to be taken lightly. 

Though sentencing severity depends on the type and quantity of drug involved, mandatory minimum sentencing in Massachusetts means certain punishment is issued even if a judge deems that punishment too severe for your case. Whatever your circumstances, contacting a recognized drug crime lawyer early is the right place to start.
