Yes, you’ll be charged with possession of the full weight you were caught with, regardless of the purity of the substance.
If you mixed two ounces of cocaine with three ounces of powdered sugar, you can be convicted of possessing five ounces of cocaine. Similarly, Ecstasy is often a mixture of various substances, including – maybe – the active drug MDMA, mixed with anything from caffeine pills to Viagra to cocaine or heroin.
You may think that a baggie of pills that are mostly caffeine would mean a substantially easier time with prosecutors, but you’d be mistaken.
New Jersey prosecutors know that the public has a strong interest in discouraging drug use and trafficking in our communities, so you’re not likely to get help from the citizens in the jury box.
You need good representation to protect you from potentially serious consequences.
