Treatment urged by officers after drug arrests

Many New Jersey residents have heard reports about drug problems plaguing the nation today. Sadly, these drug problems can sometimes lead people into situations in which they participate in or are accused of participating in criminal acts. The downward spiral of drug addiction and crime can be incredibly interwoven. The criminal justice system's approach to simply convicting people of drug crimes and putting them in jail does not appear to have made a positive difference in this.

The New Jersey Attorney General was recently noted as urging people who use drugs to find the strength to seek treatment for their addictions. This admission and recognition that help is needed for people who use illegal drugs or even sometimes legal prescription drugs is important. In the meantime, however, people continue to be arrested and charged with extremely serious crimes. An example of this can be seen in a recent case in New Jersey.

Four men have been indicted on a multitude of felony charges for their alleged involvement in selling fentanyl among other drugs. Two of the defendants are from Arizona, one is from Pennsylvania and one is from New Jersey. Charges include many second and third degree felonies such as conspiracy to distribute fentanyl, possession with intent to distribute and more. An estimated 45 kilograms of fentanyl is said to have been confiscated by officials.

When a person is charged with a drug crime in New Jersey, they may find talking to an attorney a good way of understanding their defense options.
