Drug and Narcotics Crimes
Another more recent development is the focus by State and Federal Law Enforcement on the sale and possession of pills such as ecstasy, vicodin, oxycontin and codeine, to name a few, and performance enhancing drugs such as steroids and human growth hormone.
Convictions for drug crimes can have substantial consequences beyond jail or prison. New York State requires the revocation of the driver’s license of anyone convicted of a drug offense and a conviction for a drug related offense can also have substantial immigration consequences for even legal immigrants. In addition like many other criminal convictions a conviction for a drug offense can impact many civil rights including the right to vote, the right to hold public office and can impact your ability to get many jobs.
Even Federal and New York State convictions for many Marijuana (Spelled “Marihuana” in the New York State Penal Law) can carry substantial penalties and jail sentences
