Getting arrested for drug possession can be scary. Even if it’s a small amount for personal use, the penalties can be severe. That’s why it’s so important to get a good lawyer if you’re facing drug charges in Queens, NY. In this article, we’ll break down everything you need to know about drug possession laws in Queens, and how an experienced lawyer can help.
There are a few main drug charges you can face in Queens:
The specific drug you had and the amount impacts the charges. We’ll break the laws down more below.

Selling these drugs, or possessing large amounts (over 500 mg of cocaine for example), leads to much stiffer felony charges. You can face years in state prison.
The good news is there are defenses an experienced lawyer can use to fight the charges. Some common ones include:
An aggressive lawyer will examine every part of your arrest to build a strong defense. Don’t take a plea deal until you understand all your options.
