Possession & Distribution of Ecstasy, MDMA & Molly
There are two varieties of drug offense that someone can face in New Jersey and they are either one for personal possession or for manufacturing, distributing or possession with intent to distribute. A discussion of the important aspects of each variety of MDMA, ecstasy or molly charge follow.
Possession of MDMA and related substances is governed by N.J.S.A 2C:35-10a(1). Direct or constructive possession of ecstasy, molly or MDMA results in a third degree crime, a maximum fine of $35,000 and up to 5 years in prison. There is also at least 100 hours of community service that has to be performed if possession occurs within 1,000 feet of school property. New Jersey law also imposes a mandatory driver’s license suspension of 6-24 months for possessing MDMA in Union City, North Bergen, Secaucus or another local municipality.
A criminal charge involving distribution of MDMA or other synthetic derivatives like ecstasy or molly arises out of N.J.S.A. 2C:35-5. Manufacturing, selling, distributing or intent to distribute this CDS is a first degree crime where the quantity is 5 ounces or more, a second degree crime if the weight is at least one-half ounce but less than 5 and a third degree crime if less than one-half ounce is involved. The term of imprisonment for each grade of ecstasy distribution is 10-20 years for a first degree, 5-10 years for a second degree and up to 5 years for a third degree. When the drug is in the form of a pill or other dosage unit, it is a second degree crime to selling or possess with intent to distribute 100 or more doses. At least 5 doses but less than 100 is a third degree crime and less than 5 is a fourth degree crime.
