Constructive Possession in New Jersey is the finding that while you did not physically possess drugs on your person, that you knew drugs were present, they were under your domain, and you intended to be in control of them in the future.
The classic Constructive Possession example is when a driver is pulled over and drugs are found in the pocket of a passenger.
A prosecutor can decide that the driver must have known that the friend in the passenger seat was carrying drugs, and charge the driver as well as the passenger with possession.
Drug laws are extremely serious in New Jersey, and charges stemming from them can change lives in a second.
