College is an interesting time for students. Many students are living away from home for the first time in their lives. It is very common to have students experiment with different drugs while they are in school. Students can very easily find themselves charged with possession of drugs, or worse possession with intent to distribute drugs.
In Massachusetts, the possession of an ounce or less of marijuana has been decriminalized. However, depending on how the marijuana was packaged, what other things the drugs was found with, the police can still charge you with possession with intent to distribute. If the police find cut corner baggies, scales, customer log books, or large amounts of money with the drugs, then the police may be inclined to charge you with possession to distribute drugs.
What may even make the situation worse is the potential of being charged with violating the school zone laws. If you are charged with a school zone violation, you may be facing mandatory minimum jail sentences. It is easy to get caught up in a bad situation and if you are it is very important to have an experienced defense attorney. Attorney Jason Chan has prosecuted and defended many of drug cases over the years.
