Drug-Related Crimes in NYC

When most people think of drug crimes they think of using, possessing, manufacturing, or distributing drugs that have a potential for abuse, such as marijuana, cocaine, and heroin. What is not so often realized is that drugs are also related to crime through the effects that drugs have on users in regard to their behavior.

The relationship between drugs and crime can be summarized as follows:

  • Drug defined offenses: illegal possession or use of drugs
  • Drug-related offenses: illegal behavior resulting from drug effects or the need for more
  • Drug-using lifestyle: illegal activities becoming a habitual pattern in everyday life due to drugs

The U.S. Department of Justice declares that the drug and crime relationship should be interpreted with great care. This is because drug-related offenses are often complicated and confusing. If you are being accused of committing a drug-related crime, you need a qualified attorney to represent you.
